Study Online for RYA Yachtmaster Theory with Yotspot and Kipper Sailing and save 20%  

RYA Yachtmaster Theory is a vital step towards qualifying as a professional skipper. It is also a mandatory pre-requisite for a MCA Master 200 qualification. Traditionally it required 40 hours of classroom study followed by 3 exams: chartwork, meteorology and IRPCS. This might have been delivered through an intensive 5-day course or over 20 evenings at night-school and, consequentially, was inconvenient for many of those already employed in the industry. All this has changed with the ubiquitous availability of the internet and a rapidly growing number of industry professionals are electing to study online.  

Kipper Sailing's online learning employs narrated lessons using realistic 3D -graphics that depict scenarios exactly as they might appear from the cockpit or bridge of a vessel at sea. They incorporate a variety of quizzes and exercises enabling students to confirm their understanding of each topic as they progress through the course and, of-course, expert guidance from an experienced tutor is on-hand when needed. Student can study anywhere, anytime, tackling subjects at their own speed returning to earlier lessons whenever they wish. Kipper Sailing's online RYA Coastal Skipper  Yachtmaster course is RYA approved. Exams are conducted online and can be invigilated by any professional person (for example the student's captain) who makes a declaration that the student has abided by the rules. Successful students receive a RYA Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Theory Course Completion Certificate which can be used to support an application for a MCA Master 200 Oral Exam.  

The course comprises 15 lessons and exercises plus a number of quizzes. It can be completed in around 40 hours study over up to 12 months*. It runs online on PCs, Macs and tablets through any browser. Uniquely is can also run offline on iPads and Android tablets making it ideal from students who wish to study at sea or where the internet is slow or unreliable. *Students may purchase a 6-month extension. Students who don\'t quite make the grade in one or more exams are allowed unlimited resits, normally after demonstrating that they have undertaken additional study in the appropriate areas.  

Kipper Sailing also offers online training for students with no previous experience via an online RYA Day Skipper Theory course and, for those newly embarking on their career, a combined Day Skipper and Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster Theory online course.
