Skippers Online is a Recognised RYA Distance Learning Centre based in the UK. 

 As of October 2017 we have taught over 2,000 RYA Day Skipper and Yachtmaster Theory students in 59 countries online. 


Realistic Scenarios

We use realistic 3D graphics and videos to illustrate scenarios exactly as they might appear from onboard your vessel. This is particularly valuable when teaching The Collision Regulations, Buoyage and Pilotage. 

Money Back Guarantee

We know that choosing whether to study in a conventional classroom environment or online is a big decision and  want all our students to be 100% satisfied with their choice, so we offer a 14-day money back guarantee.

Step by Step Instructions

Straightforward, narrated and animated, step-by-step instructions, incorporating regular quizzes and exercises, teach navigation, meteorology, the collision regulations, buoyage and safety at your own pace.

Our Platform

We employ the same state-of-the art technology chosen by major corporations such as IBM, Microsoft and Sony to deliver online training to their employees. Our lessons run on Windows PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones and Android devices.

 

If you don't always have access to an Internet connection, you can view lessons offline on an iOS or Android device.

Guaranteed Pass

We prepare you carefully for the final exams, which are taken online after you've attempted mock papers. If you don't quite make the grade we provide detailed personal feedback, suggest relevant additional study and allow unlimited resits.
