This course is designed for individuals who have some theory and
practical knowledge but no formal tuition. While it is possible for
novices to complete the course, it is not recommended. The Day
Skipper revision section is self-paced, and the time to complete it
depends on your current level of knowledge.
The Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Offshore section of the course
takes approximately 50-60 hours, and it includes a long assessment
consisting of three parts: IRPCS (1.5 hours), PassageMaking A (1.5
hours), and Passage Making B (2 hours). These assessments can be
taken either in one sitting or as separate papers.
This course is suitable for commercial endorsement by having your assessment invigilated.
