Training takes place primarily in Plymouth, some elements can be taught from our London base or in a training room at the Company’s location.


Boatmaster Prep – 5 Days

Plymouth Price: £800 (£900 inc training materials)
London Price: £960 (£1060 inc training materials)

The course is combined with our Master 200 prep weeks. If you would like to include the 2 volumes of specific training materials covering Annex 10 of MSN 1853, there is an addition charge of £100.
