Please check that the free trial runs on your device before booking. The courses do not use a platform so work on most devises including Ipad, Iphone, PC Mac, Android etc. There maybe some issues with the free chart plotter simulator provided by the RYA. It works on PC and Mac but not on mobile devices. It is not essential to the courses so can be worked around if a student does not have access to eh PC based units.

Pre-course knowledge
Students should be at the correct level for the course being taken. No previous experience is required to take the Day Skipper theory course. Day Skipper level theory is required for the Coastal/Yachtmaster theory and Coastal/Yahctmaster theory is required before taking the RYA Ocean theory. Navathome reserves the right to change a course from Coastal to Day Skipper if it becomes apparent that the student does not have the required pre-course knowledge and the student does not hold a current Day Skipper certificate.
