Fast Track to Yachtmaster Offshore Power
This fully inclusive course is perfect if you want to Fast Track you way to a new career in the maritime industry. The Yachtmaster Offshore Power on motor cruising yachts is the benchmark for careers in the motor sector of the Maritime Industry and is the starting point for the MCA Masters routes into the Superyacht sector. Plus most importantly, since you’ll have trained on a yacht close to 15 meters in length you will be taken seriously when applying for positions on yachts up to 24 meters.
With Allabroad you will succeed
By choosing Allabroad Sailing Academy for your Yachtmaster Offshore Power you are buying into our 15 years of Fast Track training success. You will be cruising our Jeanneau Prestige 46 with twin 500hp turbo diesel Volvo engines, cruising comfortably at 20knts. You have the full use of the two training rooms and crew lounge by personal keypad access 24 hours a day whilst in our Gibraltar training base. Our Instructional team is very experienced and dedicated to seeing you achieve your goals, many of our instructors have been with us for many years and do so because they share our passion for standards.
RYA and MCA Recognition
With the STCW endorsement, which comes as standard in our full Fast Track Yachtmaster Offshore Power package, your Yachtmaster Offshore has a wider acceptance outside of British waters, on a wider range of flagged vessels and gives you a wider variety of employment opportunities including the superyacht sector for example. Choosing a training center that has both RYA and MCA status means that you benefit from the stricter quality standards that are expected and regularly audited by the MCA which include full time accessible training rooms.
We’ve been running Fast Track Yachtmaster Power courses for 10 years now and this is the expertise that you are buying into. We take our responsibility to you personally and do adapt the course constantly to your individual changing training needs. We understand that sometimes exam nerves can get the better of even the strongest of candidates, and not everyone is ready in 12 weeks, some do need a little longer. With Allabroad we do offer one more additional week of training at no extra charge for the full 12 week candidate who has been committed to their training and been a great crew member onboard, this will be fitted to the boats, instructors and examiners schedule on a case-by-case basis. Nobody has needed this extra week yet, but it’s there just-in-case.
Time & Money Investment Takes Consideration
We do appreciate fully that committing to this course is a big investment in your time and in funds too. It’s also a big investment for Allabroad, this course is very expensive to run and that’s why we need your firm commitment from the start. Keep in mind that we can burn 1000 litres of fuel in a day; 2500nm of training roughly uses 14,000 litres of fuel and considerable engine hours. We’ve always made our pricing competitive in terms of the package and also that it really is fully inclusive of all the elements you need to be a Commercial Yachtmaster Offshore Power and a great deal more too. This course will see you achieve great starting salaries in the industry and course fees will be quickly earned back. We are open and upfront that you will need to bring spending money for your personal entertainment ashore and also your personal laundry requirements.
If you already have experience and are wanting a bespoke course length, we need to see your personal log for under 24 meter category, and for over 24 meters we need to see your supporting Captain’s Testimonial’s or Seaman’s Discharge Book.
1800 start on the first Sunday. A full schedule is given in the first week, which follows our trusted framework of activities mixing between shore-based events, distance cruising and honing fine skills on skills and drills development days. This is a full time course; it is not a walk in the park but it is fun too. You need to be adaptable, if you are not you are not suited to the Maritime industry. Whilst we give you the ideal training schedule, you can not expect this to occur in sequence, days off may turn into days at sea, days at sea may turn into shore based classroom days – we adapt to the circumstances, you need to too.
Firstly before we give course dates please let us know if the dates below do not fit with your schedule. There is some flexibility in these dates so do let us know when YOU want to start and we will check this is a good point to join. We do not take booking for two weeks after the 12 week course since we know it may over run due to weather and other eventualities, this is yachting! So keep your time also flexible, you will finish when you are a Yachtmaster Power.
