RYA Interactive courses has moved the study of sailing theory into the 21st Century with the development of online variations of some popular RYA Theory courses. The ability to study a course from a laptop or tablet opens up the possibility for students who may be unable to attend a classroom-based course due to insufficient time or location, to complete a theory course.
The RYA Interactive courses are a great way of learning, offering flexibility by allowing students to study at their own pace and from a location of their choice.
The RYA Interactive courses use either web based presentations or information that can be downloaded to a computer or tablet – the course is then completed as per a classroom based course, with the instructor on hand to answer queries via email or telephone call. All training materials are included with the RYA Interactive courses.
The following RYA theory courses are available as RYA Interactive Courses
RYA Essential Navigation and Seamanship Course – A course for anyone thinking of taking to the water. It provides the basics of navigation, seamanship and safety and the student pack contains a set of plotter/dividers to set a student up for all their theory course studies. Equinox Sailing is currently offering the course for £50 instead of £99 if purchased with an RYA Competent Crew Course.
PPR – Professional Practices and Responsibilities – All revalidating commercially endorsed Yachtmasters are required to attend this course. This course is available for £39.
SRC (VHF) Pre knowledge check – This course is a useful recap if you have recently attended your SRC radio course and essential if you are planning to attend a SRC radio course in the near future. The course is available for free.
The SRC (VHF) radio course will be available online in early January 2014. Equinox Sailing have been assisting the RYA with the testing of the new course and are comfortable that the online ‘radio’ used within the course to practice sending radio calls, gives a similar experience to using a real radio.
