Welcome to Ocean Training Online
Our courses include both RYA Leisure courses and MCA Commercial courses
We have been providing high quality Distance Learning courses for many years, presently serving over 67 countries worldwide.
The courses all come with very high quality animations.(100 for RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship, 330 for RYA Day Skipper and 375 for RYA/MCA Yachtmaster) These are professionally made animations and are so good they are now all used for training of the MCA staff themselves! These animations are the "icing on the cake" and compliment the high quality course material. All the courses also have Student Marked Assignments (SMA's) and Tutor Marked Assignments (TMA's).
Like all good things we are not the cheapest but these are the best courses you will find for a fantastic learning experience. Do beware of cheaper courses that will not give you the Tutor backup when you need it!
We also provide the MCA Officer of the Watch (OOW) - Yachts Under 3000 tons Navigation and Radar on-line course and the MCA General Ship Knowledge Online course.
