Shore Based Courses

We run one-day RYA shorebased courses, from our classroom in Lowestoft, to allow you to expand your knowledge and enhance your skills. They are great as a stand alone course, but also complement our practical training.

We plan dates for our VHF Marine Radio courses throughout the year which are listed below. For commercial businesses and groups of more than 3 people we can schedule courses to suit you.

Our main training base is situated in Lowestoft, Suffolk but we are happy to discuss training throughout the UK.

To discuss your training or to find out more information on what we can offer please do not hesitate to contact us on 07570 794196 or by email. We are open seven days a week.

2018 Dates

    CEVNI (Européen des Voies de Navigation Intérieure) is the code governing navigation on the interconnected European inland waterways. This exam is for anyone who is looking to boat on the Inland Waterways of Europe. CEVNI is not covered in any of the RYA’s courses, even those specific to inland waterways. It is therefore necessary to have a separate theory test on the CEVNI regulations.  There is no separate CEVNI certificate or CEVNI endorsement. Passing the ICC CEVNI test simply allows the Inland category on your ICC to be validated, thereby indicating that you have demonstrated knowledge of the traffic regulations applicable on inland waters or Europe.

    Minimum age 16.

    Book 2 places for £50
    Book 3 places for £75

    Free when booked with any ICC Assesment
