The NMCS is a recognised educational establishment authorised by the Royal Yachting Association to conduct courses and to issue certificates on their behalf.

All the RYA courses have been written to meet the specific syllabus requirements of the RYA, and ensure that you are well prepared to meet the standards expected for the final test assessments. Upon successful completion of the course we are able to issue you with the appropriate RYA certificate.

Meteorology and navigation remain the same, but the elements of seamanship are biased towards your preference.

Navigation
is the art and science of finding your position at sea, of moving in the right direction to your destination and of ensuring that you have chosen a safe route and can stay on it. The use of electronic navigation aids are covered wherever appropriate.
.......................................................................................................................................................
Seamanship
is the knowledge of ships and boats in general, their construction and characteristics, the equipment carried and its use, the environment in which they sail (seas, rivers and estuaries), safety precautions and emergency procedures.
.......................................................................................................................................................
Meteorology
is the science of the weather - the ally and potential enemy of all small boats. You will need to know sufficient about this subject to interpret and act upon weather forecasts and to prepare your own predictions from your own observations.
