SeaRegs moves RYA, SQA and MCA courses online
With many people learning to adjust to working in a different way, certain Seafarers are classified as essential workers, whether it’s working in the renewable energy sector, aquaculture or as part of the supply chain. The requirement of mandatory certificates hasn’t changed and SeaRegs Training has been busy reviewing which of the courses the company offers can be delivered online, either as a self-study course or live sessions with an Instructor.
Qualification Awarding Bodies realise the need for change from traditional methods of classroom-based face-to-face teaching and are working on solutions, some courses have already been approved in full or part for online delivery and more are in the pipeline.
SeaRegs Training has already successfully run a number of accredited RYA/MCA Navigation courses including Day Skipper, Coastal/Yachtmaster and the one day Radar course in addition to a number of mini lectures such as Safe Access, ColRegs, SMS, ISM and the IPV code.
The SQA has confirmed SeaRegs Training is able to deliver both the Electronic Chart Systems and Use of Radar in Code Vessel units online, both these units form part of the training requirements of the Workboat 2 Code.
Currently under review are a number MCA and STCW courses which may be delivered fully or partly online including the MCA 1 day Stability course for Code Vessels. Details of courses and dates are available on the Searegs Training website - www.searegs.co.uk
SeaRegs Training was formed over 10 years ago, delivering maritime training and apprenticeships to Small Commercial Vessel Operators, Workboat and Inland passenger vessels. Experience gained over the last few years delivering remote instructor Mock Exam and Oral exam preparation has been put to good use over the last few weeks in developing the company’s online provision.
