Online theory course
You are not alone with the online course
there is a good support structure.
There is a good support structure online. We can also provide tutorials and revision when you come on one of our practical courses, be it day skipper or at yachtmaster level.
Great way to prepare for practical courses
We find that today people are time limited. By being able to prepare with the relevant online theory course you can save time and cost, allowing more time on the water for practical courses.
The materials developed by Skippers Online lead you through the RYA theory courses which complement the practical courses.
We use realistic 3D graphics and videos to illustrate scenarios exactly as they might appear from onboard your vessel. This is particularly valuable when teaching The Collision Regulations, Buoyage and Pilotage.
Step by Step Instructions
Straightforward, narrated and animated, step-by-step instructions, incorporating regular quizzes and exercises, teach navigation, meteorology, the collision regulations, buoyage and safety at your own pace.
