SQA Approved

SeaRegs Training have SQA approval for the Level 3 Award in Maritime Studies: Use of Radar and Electronic Chart Systems in Code Vessels.

The Award has 2 modules; Use of Radar for Safe Navigation and Collision Avoidance on Domestic and Code Vessels, and Operate Non-ECDIS Marine Electronic Chart Systems. Both need to be completed to gain the full award however the modules can be studied individually at any time.

Whilst initially aimed at meeting the training requirements of the 2014 Workboat code, these units will be of benefit to skippers of code vessels and the content is similar to the MCA Small Ships Navigation and Radar course. The MCA have confirmed in MIN 522 the Radar module can be used on its own for the radar endorsement under the Boatmaster scheme.

Each module takes 2 1/2 days including assessment and we’ve scheduled them to run back to back so both can be completed in 5 days.

Booked individually, each module costs £450 or book them together for a reduced price of £850. Courses run throughout the year, click to view dates and availability.
