Apprenticeships

  • Boatmaster Level 3 (24 months): The new Boatmaster Level 3 standard was approved in November 2019, currently we program the training to take place in blocks over 24 months covering the mandatory 20 qualifications which include STCW Basic Training, practical boat handling courses and also incorporates the SQA Level 2 Diploma in Maritime Studies - Rivers, Inland Waterways and Limited Distances to Sea.
  • Workboat Crew Level 3: The aim over the time is to train the apprentices to at least a MCA/RYA Yachtmaster Coastal, therefore qualified as a mate on vessels up to 150nm and skipper up to 20nm from a safe haven. Training includes Electronic Navigation, Radar and Stability training in line with the Workboat Code. This is a very practically based apprenticeship with plenty of training afloat.
