This is a shorebased course that can be taken in the classroom or online by Zoom. The final exam only needs to be invigilated if the students are looking to progress into higher MCA qualifications (Master200, OOW500, scl). If not, you do not need it invigilated and we send the exam papers to you, which you will return to us once completed. If you do need it invigilated it will need to be done in a classroom (cannot be done via zoom) with a Yachtmaster Instructor or Shorebased instructor attending.
