What is a ‘Theory Skills Refresher’ session?
Many sailors have over time taken some form of shore-based theory course – whether it be ‘Day Skipper’ or ‘Coastal Skipper / Yachtmaster’ level. But, like so many things in life that we learn, if we don’t keep using those new skills on a regular basis we can soon forget what we have invested a considerable amount of time and money in gaining in the first place.
When teaching practical courses we are often spending our evenings on board the yacht revisiting subjects from the theory syllabus, often in some depth. Many students comment on the fact that they did once ‘know all this, honest!’
So, rather than worry about whether your theory skills are up-to-date and if you can remember the difference between a Course to Steer and a Projected Estimated Position why not take the opportunity to have a Theory Skills Refresher session?
You don’t need to resit the whole course for the level you are at, after all, you already have the certificate. Instead, we offer bespoke refresher training courses from one day onwards that will cover the key topics you wish to be refreshed on.
