Developing the EDYC Training Plan Nov 21

Training at EDYC Nov 2021 and onwards

In ideal circumstances our club could undertake a training needs analysis and database the results so we can manage appropriate courses, however we operate on a simpler level.

We seek an indication of your training wishes now by your completion and return of a simple word form . Completion of this form will indicate what training you (or family and friends) are considering. Because not all will know of the courses which can be provided the following list will help. Each course can be further detailed by links and searches mainly to the RYA web site. The RYA web is the dominant source for RYA endorsed qualifications. Your form will be acknowledged on receipt by gp14edyc@talktalk.net and later details will be sent of courses you are interested in as they develop (likely early spring).

At this time of year (Nov) it is the shore based courses which are under most consideration.

First Aid Course – this is commonly required in early spring

Our RYA one-day course covers all the usual first aid subjects, but from a boating perspective. It is aimed at anyone who goes afloat, whether on inland waters, rivers, estuaries or on cross channel passages. This course is MCA approved and satisfies the requirements for Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster and Advanced Powerboat certificates of competence and some commercial work afloat.
