Useful tips and tricks

  1. Read though the exam syllabus.
  2. Your pass certificate is valid for three years.
  3. You do not need a Notice of Eligibility (NoE) to attend this course. However you will need an NoE for your MCA oral examination. Download the application form. Allow at least six weeks (currently even more) for the NoE to be processed by the MCA.
  4. Do the ‘proper’ PSCRB course instead of ‘Advanced Sea Survival for Yachtsmen’. The latter has not got an STCW Code which has the following implications: Not all flag states recognise the Advanced Sea Survival, meaning you might have to do the PSCRB later anyway. Your certificate will have a negative endorsement (‘not to be used on vessels with davit-launched life rafts’). There is also no updating course available for the Advanced Sea Survival.
  5. Pre-study makes the difference. That’s why we send you the course notes as soon as you book.
  6. Be familiar with the career progression requirements. View a simple progression chart.
  7. Did you know that you may be eligible to do the OOW Unlimited? Download our guide on how to gain OOW Unlimited certification when working in yachting.
  8. Our first-time pass rate is unsurpassed in the industry.
