We teach these RYA shorebased courses: Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster Offshore, Yachtmaster Ocean, VHF Short Range Certificate and RadarSmall courses give our students real benefits. •We can schedule the course as far as possible to meet our student’s other commitments and activities. •Teaching can be adjusted and customised to suit the needs and knowledge of those taking the course. Many people like to learn in a small group with an experienced intructor teaching ‘face to face’. The RYA’s courses can be quite demanding.•Where it makes sense, we can often build in time for advance reading and study before the classroom teaching for a topic. This may not reduce the workload but it does mean that our students can ‘mix and match’ the way they work and take advantage of their existing knowledge and experience. •For more mature students a course run over a longer time period at a slightly slower rate can be very beneficial. Our courses are flexible. •We can run a course intensively or spread it over a longer period. A very popular approach, which fits well with people’s lives, is to teach in three hour sessions scheduled to meet the student’s other commitments. We don’t make any extra charge for this or for evening and weekend teaching.•Many courses include coursework set by the RYA. Our approach gives our students time for this vital activity and helps them to get a better understanding of the more complex topics. We don’t have to teach at Stokenham.•If you would prefer us to teach at your address and you have suitable facilities we can travel to you. oWe charge for our travel at 45p per mile.See our Terms and conditions and course price pages for more information.
