Navigation & Radar - Blended Learning - Learn the Theory at Home or at Sea - the most economical way to train

Fully MCA Approved

This is the 21st Century way of gaining the MCA Officer of the Watch Navigation and Radar Certificate

OVERVIEW

This STCW Manila 2010 course means that an overall MCA certificate can be obtained by a system of combining theory and practice by Blended Learning. Ocean Training Online will provide all the theory subjects (wherever you are in the world - at home or at sea)

After successful completion of the Theory exams we then feed you into one of our associated colleges - to complete the practical (Bridge Simulator) five day course

Thus great savings are to be had as you do not have the expense of living away to learn your theory and save on travel and accommodation costs.

Also you may do the theory on a vessel at sea, in your spare time and therefore can "Earn while you Learn"

The first two thirds of the OOW Navigation and Radar course can be completed at home or whilst working on board ship.

You can complete the course in your own time and pace

You will be allocated your own personal tutor who will guide you through the course and mark your assignments

The actual time at college is then only five days. This approach to training will suit many seafarers/superyacht crew and their employers.
