With the fast pace of modern life it is not always possible to organize a day or two to sit in a classroom. In some cases, people have to travel far to reach an approved facility.

The online course covers the SAMSA syllabus for the ‘R’ (Inland waters) and ‘E’ (1 Nautical Mile Sea) entry level licenses.  A holder of a R-license can upgrade to an E-license the moment he/she has the necessary sea hours – without doing another course.

Who should do the online course?

  1. Anyone, who does not have the time or facility nearby, wishing to write the SAMSA examination and apply for a skipper license.
  2. A person who wishes to study beforehand and then attend a  skipper course.xsound-signals
  3. Anyone who wishes to have more knowledge on the handling of a water going vessel but does not necessary wants to write the SAMSA exam.
  4. “Skipper assistant” It is a good idea to have a backup on board should something happen to the skipper. This can include anyone who cruises on a regular basis with an existing skipper. Someone younger than 16 can do the course but can only write the SAMSA exam after turning 16.

Initially thought this was going to be a waste of time.I was so wrong. I am now confident about my knowledge and understand the need for a certificate of competence. I can recommend this course ta anybody who needs the information or who wants to get a CoC.

Just the right level of information for the relevant category of licence.
