Who this course is for:
Each year approximately 4,500 people apply to the RYA for a commercial endorsement in order to use their RYA qualifications professionally as skipper or crew. You could be doing anything from delivering a new 35’ yacht or driving a workboat with lifting and towing gear, to running a superyacht in the Med. Whatever your job is on board, in the commercial world you are a professional seafarer. As such, you are no different from the captain of a cruise liner – you have a duty of care to crew, passengers, and other water users, and you will be held to account if things go wrong.
The RYA Professional Practices & Responsibilities is made up of four modules and we estimate users will take from 4 to 8 hours to work through the course modules. Following the modules there is a mock assessment so you can check you are ready before moving on to the final graded online assessment.
The end of course assessment is split into two sections of roughly 2½ hours in total. When you have passed the end of course assessment you will be able to download a certificate which you should send to the RYA with your commercial endorsement application or renewal form.
