The MCA Stability for Workboats, Pilot Boats and Small Commercial Vessels was introduced by the MCA to comply with the requirement in the Workboat Code Edition 2 for crew to attend a stability course. It complies with Appendix 3, 2.14 Stability Training of the code.
Not only is the course a requirement under the new workboat code it is also very useful for a greater understanding of stability and the use of a code vessels stability information book.
This a both a theoretical and practical course with practical exercises using a workboat model in a water tank and group working sessions.
Candidates for other MCA qualifications such as Master 200/OOW 500, Boatmaster, Tug Master and Yachtmaster Offshore would find this course useful to demystify what can be a complex subject.
