Rated 4.8 stars out from 5 from genuine feedback on Feefo, Sailing Course Online has successfully delivered courses to thousands of students, many of whom have gone on to undertake a practical course. And although the course is online, you’re only an email away from fast and helpful support from Sailing Course Online’s team of qualified instructors.

Learning online brings many advantages for those who struggle to take five days off to learn in a classroom:

  • Online offers a no pressure approach – learn at your own pace.
  • Easy to follow course, with animations and 20+ videos that bring the content to life.
  • Bite-sized modules enable you to organise learning around day-to-day life.
  • Review your knowledge as many times as you like with the end of module tests.
  • A wealth of “Skipper’s Tips” give you extra real-life perspective on many of the topics.
  • Fast help from qualified instructors whenever you need it – no question is too silly!

The courses work seamlessly across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices, enabling you to learn anywhere you have an internet connection. Access to the exams is included, and as all exams are hand-marked, you will receive tailored feedback on your answers, giving you the confidence to put your newly acquired skills into practice.

A hard copy certificate is posted to you upon successful course completion.

Fast Help Whenever You Need It

Just because your course is online, doesn’t mean the support you get is remote as well. Use the email button in your Classroom for fast help with minor queries or arrange a telephone / video call for a more in-depth conversation.

The instructors who support Sailing Course Online are additionally RYA Yachtmaster™ Instructors. They’re 100% committed to giving you friendly and knowledgeable assistance. All exams are manually marked and helpful feedback is provided.
