online navigation training

Following a great suggestion from a fellow forum member I have been looking into online rya day skipper training.

I need to get the day skipper certificate but I have had a fair bit of nav training over the years and passed my advanced powerboat without any issues so I am reluctant to spend a week in a classroom.

Has anyone on here done one of these courses, any views appreciated,

Hi MikeL
Have a look on the RYA website for details of distance learning courses.
Quite a few and all varying in price .

They do have their plus points in that you can study at your own pace but check out what type of student support they give in case you come across a problem that needs explaining in detail

The advantage of the class room is you have the instructor on hand to help you in those types of situations and you can work through your answers with them if you can't quite get it.

Good luck with it though .
