Hybrid courses for RYA Day Skipper Theory and RYA Yachtmaster Theory are available in central London. They comprise a comprehensive Home Study course (the same as distance learning) AND a series of evening tutorial sessions. This format has proved to be efficient, flexible and successful. Comprehensive materials with clear modular structure enable students to study effectively at home. 5 evening sessions (one 3-hour evening per week – 1830 to 2130) are arranged for Day Skipper. 7 weekly sessions are arranged for Yachtmaster. These evenings provide valuable instructor support to get you started and deal with trickier topics; they help to motivate and maintain focus; and you get to meet and exchange ideas with other people with the same interests. The topics to be covered each evening are shown in your study plan so if circumstances cause you to miss an evening you have the resources to work around it at home and your instructor will be on hand to advise you.
The home study (distance learning) materials are RYA approved and provide everything you need to complete the course. This provides flexibility so if you have to miss an evening its not critical; you have all the course presentations and your instructor will be available to advise you.
