RYA Professional Practices and Responsibilities Online course

Professional Practices and Responsibilities 


Sunsail offers this online course for new RYA commercial endorsements. An essential course for those wishing to use their RYA qualifications professionally as skipper or crew. 

Whether you’re looking to deliver a new yacht, driving a workboat with lifting and towing gear or running a superyacht in the Med, you’ll be required to be a professional seafarer. In the commercial world you have a duty of care to your crew, passengers and others on the water, and you’ll be held accountable if things go wrong. You can take this course any time prior to your commercial endorsement application or renewal. Your PPR certificate will be valid either for your first commercial endorsement application or your next renewal.
