In the distance Yacht Skipper course you have all the updated resources and materials, presented in a well-structured and enjoyable way, so that you can successfully prepare and easily pass the Yacht Skipper theoretical exam.

The online distance Yacht Skipper course includes:

Teaching materials:
It includes all the necessary didactic material and the manuals that develop the official program to pass the exam.

virtual school:
An online school where you will find:
– The extensive development of all the theoretical parts of the 4 theoretical units, in a well-structured and didactic way.
– Access to the course from any device, be it a computer, a tablet or a mobile phone.
– Videos, with a duration of more than 8 hours, concise and brief. The tutorial videos develop the different parts of the syllabus and explain the resolution, step by step, of different real questions in the official exams.
– The official exams given in the autonomous communities, from the years 2015 to the current year 2023, of Andalusia, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Catalonia, Galicia, Madrid, Murcia, the Basque Country and the Valencia Community.
– Access is for a period of 6 months, with the possibility of extending it for another 6 months, free of charge.

Includes 2 applications to practice Exam Tests:
To pass the official PY exam it is very important that you take a lot of tests and thus you will develop skills and familiarize yourself with the questions that you will find on the day of your exam.
In this course you have two ways to practice taking the official exam tests.
The first is through "Exams" and the second is through "Practice test".
The difference between the two is that in "Exams", you can choose between doing the "Navigation Module" or the "Generic Module". You will practice with all the 20 questions of the official exam, of a specific exam, that is, of an autonomous community, taking the exam in a year and in a specified month.
While in "Practice Test", you have the possibility to test only one of the 4 topics that make up the official CY exam. You must choose an autonomous community, in a specific year. You will choose, for example, to practice with all the 2022 Murcia Meteorology questions, or you can choose to ask all the 2021 Madrid Navigation Theory questions.
In addition, you will be able to create yourself some questionnaires for errors, in a very simple way, of the questions that you have not been able to hit correctly, in order to be able to practice with them.

Online Tutor:
A tutor at your disposal to resolve by email any doubts you have during the study of the Yacht Skipper syllabus.
