Motor Cruising Day Skipper Course

Motor Cruising Day Skipper Course:

Day Skipper Motor course aims to teach practical pilotage, navigation, seamanship and boat handling up to the standard required to skipper a motor cruiser safely in familiar waters by day.


This course is has two components: Theory and practical. An online or 5-day classroom Day Skipper theory course must be completed before taking starting the practical training.


The Day Skipper Motor Cruiser Certificate of Competence is recognised internationally.



Due to busy schedules, people do not always have the time to spend 5 days in the classroom for their Shore based theory modules, for this reason the online courses are ideal, as you are able to complete the course in the comfort of your own home, and work at your own pace.  Once you have registered for the course, you have 6 months to complete the module.
