Online RYA Theory, and MCA Commercial Courses

Monkey’s Fist Sailing aims to offer offshore sail training tailored to your particular needs, at the venue of your choice and within the constraints of your diary. It is not always convenient or even possible for individuals to commit themselves to either intensive course courses over several days or evening classes spread over several weeks or more likely months.  Whether you’re at home or at sea it is important you have the flexibility how to complete your chosen theory course independent of the necessity to have permanent communication links while working  through the lessons.  However many online options that rely on you having access to the internet while you study – again that is not always practical.  For that reason we have teamed up with Ocean Training Online – a UK based company providing high quality interactive RYA and MCA courses to students worldwide. Through Ocean Training Online we offer a computer based option that provides study independent of the internet and includes:

  • Traditional training materials.
  • Complete and interactive yet independent computer based training package:
    • With upto 380 animations on the RYA Navigation courses alone, the student is supplied on a USB stick which means you do not have to waste time downloading the software. Simply “Plug and Play”
    • You can also use the software as many times as you like for course revision.

You work your way through a series of modules and at the end of each you complete a learning exercise

  • At any stage a tutor  is available, on a one-to -one basis, to guide you through every stage.
