Steaditrack Career Training

We do not do "fast track". We believe that it is better to put together a package of courses and voyages over a period of time to suit individual personal goals and existing experience. Whether you wish to gain a Yachtmaster Coastal or Yachtmaster Offshore certificate for pleasure or commercial use. Any previous qualifications and experience will be helpful to reduce the overall training time. If you wish to use your qualifications commercially you would need to do a couple of additional courses and gain a MCA approved medical.

Part of Steaditrack training is gaining mileage at sea. This can be achieved by completing our Fastnet package or Round Britain trip for yachts or deliveries and motor flotilla trips for motor. We endeavour to get Steaditrack students involved with assisting on yacht or motor boat deliveries to broaden their experience on different vessels and in different locations.

Suggested Previous Experience

None. Any experience you may possess will be helpful in reducing the cost. You must hold a valid MCA Medical Fitness Report (ML5).
