Course Dates

Covid-19 Outbreak – please note that we cannot currently operate from our training centre, therefore we are offering a selection of courses online, including oral prep. See course list below for details of which courses are running online.

UPDATE: We will be offering some Engineering courses from our training centre from mid-August, in line with government guidelines. These courses may be moved online if UK guidelines change due to a second spike in virus numbers.

We offer an extensive and comprehensive range of both RYA and MCA courses. Our School is set in the heart of Hoylake, on the beautiful Wirral peninsula in Northwest England.
