Online Day Skipper & Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster Offshore Theory Course

In Association with Skippers Online


We believe that Skippers Online is one of the best way to study for your RYA Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Theory Qualification. Courses are engaging, get results and save you money.You can study anytime, anywhere for up to 12 months, moving backwards and forwards within and between lessons to ensure that you’ve fully grasped concepts and processes before moving on.

Courses are fully approved by the RYA for gaining associated qualifications and support from a highly experienced Yachtmaster Instructor is always on hand. You can ask questions from directly within a lesson.

Unlike older generation on-line training all lessons are narrated because many people find it remarkably difficult to read instructions on-screen. Think about this. Would you rather participate in a lesson where the tutor remains silent and simply writes detailed instructions on the blackboard or one where the tutor talks about the subject and walks you through processes step by step, writing bullet points on the board?

Lessons use realistic 3D models to teach the collision regulations, buoyage and pilotage so you can see exactly how situations will appear from your vessel’s cockpit.

You can pause and replay lessons or parts of lessons and navigate backwards and forwards and within lessons using a graphical index of pages.

Exercises are presented in many different formats, not just multiple-choice questions, and you get immediate feedback including fully worked answers to the many exercises offered in the RYA course materials.

As soon as you’ve signed up you can log-in to Skippers Online’s Learning Management System and start eLearning. Your course pack, comprising: 2 training charts; a RYA Training Almanac and a course handbook will be sent to you by Royal Mail First Class Post within 24 business hours of signing up by First Class mail or Airmail if you are overseas. It should arrive next day within the UK, within 3-4 days in Europe and around 5-7 days elsewhere. If you would prefer overseas courier delivery you can request it for an additional £35.

Lessons run on pretty much everything and anything in Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari and Firefox on Windows PCs, Apple Macs, Linux, iPad, iPhone and Android devices including phones, although you might find the screen a little small on some phones. iPad and Android tablet users can download lessons to run without an Internet connection for example whilst commuting or at sea.
