What makes our courses different?

We’re not the only online RYA theory course provider, so we work hard to build the best courses to make sure you’ll choose to study with us.


To give you the best possible study experience we draw on the combined knowledge and experience of our team of senior Instructors to develop our online RYA training courses.  We go beyond the RYA syllabus to teach you how to skipper a vessel safely and efficiently — not just what you need to pass the exams.


Our lessons are fully narrated with personal insights, and delivered with interactive animations and graphics to help you gain a full knowledge of each subject in the course syllabus.

We’ve made them fun and enjoyable, as well as informative and challenging.

They are intuitive and easy to follow, whilst more complex subjects are carefully explained, with animated elements and step by step illustrations, that you can go over again and again until you fully understand them.

Regular quizzes reinforce your learning, and exercises at the end of each lesson confirm your progress to fully prepare you for your mock and final exams.


Exceptional Support

We’re here to help you at every stage.  Our team of highly experienced RYA Instructors are on hand to offer unlimited assistance on any aspect of your course that you might need and to give prompt and thorough feedback on exercises and exams.  


Satisfaction guaranteed

We′re confident that our courses are the best available.  However, we know that choosing whether to study online or in a conventional classroom environment can be a big decision and we want all our students to be 100% satisfied with their choice, so we offer a 14-day no quible money back guarantee.


But don’t just take out word for it...

    Ability to repeat when in doubt

    Logical and clear. What was really good was the ability to go back and repeat or all or part of a lesson to ensure you truly understand a concept / principle, something which is more difficult to do when in a real classroom situation
