Our Training Pathways focus on skills in the leadership of marine adventure expeditions and the facilitation of effective learning environments. Our curriculum is covered through sequenced adventures with progressively more responsibility.

  • CREW (Level 1) involves learning the competencies to “hand, reef and steer”, operating as a capable member of both a small boat sailing crew and expedition team.

  • MATE (Level 2)  recognises assistant skippers, who are able to lead by example, teach the crew and consistently perform a high standard of skills to support the work of skippers and the expedition leader.

  • SKIPPER (Level 3) – manages adventure activities with the capacity to act in each of the watch leader expedition roles.

  • MASTER (Level 4) – expedition leadership for planning and co-ordination of expeditions and training/mentoring for Skippers.
