Professional Yachtmaster Ocean

About UKSA:

UKSA is a youth charity offering transformational opportunities for young people through sailing and watersports. We focus on three areas: personal development, schools and group visits, and professional maritime training. We are based in Cowes, Isle of Wight - the heart of the yachting world.

We don't just offer certification and training, as a youth charity we can offer that bit extra. We really look after our young people. Our careers students benefit from 1:1 mentoring, access to our careers network, realistic careers advice and help with CVs. We help over 9,000 people a year to achieve their personal best. We have a fantastic fleet, a waterfront campus, inspirational instructors and great facilities.

Professional Yachtmaster Ocean:
Our 22–week Professional Yachtmaster Ocean course will give you the qualifications, practical sailing experience, engineer and maintenance skills required to work on all types of yachts, from yachts under 24 metres to superyachts.

Unique to UKSA are the excellent personal development opportunities on offer — one-to-one career mentoring, our robust assessment process and guidance towards a job at the end of the course thanks to our excellent industry contacts.

Add to this our fantastic facilities and extensive fleet of yachts, our state-of-the-art Transas simulation suite, the inspirational professional instructors you will meet and the camaraderie you will find among your fellow sailors — the course will meet your every requirement and more.

Pre-requisite experience:
There are no pre-requisites necessary to start the course. All that we ask is that you have enough sailing experience to know that you want a life at sea. The course itself will provide you with experience, skills and confidence up to and well above the requirements for the RYA / MCA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification.
