LONDON MCA Boatmaster Preparation Part 1


This course will be held at Royal Docks in London.

Please note if Covid-19 restrictions prevent us from running this course, we will transfer your place to a later date or issue a refund.

Preparing for an MCA Oral exam is a daunting experience, especially as quite often it is difficult to know how much you need to learn and to what level. We run preparation courses in two parts; an intro or refresher course to start with, followed by a heavier duty oral prep. You can do one or both courses leading to your orals and we are happy to chat through the best option. We run two courses as we found that many people were arriving on a Final Oral preparation course somewhat underprepared and therefore did not get the full benefit from the training as they were forever playing catch-up.

Oral prep part 1. Refresher, intro or possible BML T2 L1

This course is ideal for those that have been working towards their qualification, but are either: a little rusty, unsure what their knowledge is or wanting to ensure they have got a good solid foundation for Part 2. It can also be used as a primer for BML T2L1 exams.

Chartwork and tides
Stability intro
Intro to Health and Safety
Safety Management systems
Vessel paperwork and class vessel intro
Colregs – working knowledge
