Our Online RYA Theory Training is fresh, fun and engaging, gets results and saves you money. You can study anytime, anywhere with an Internet connection or offline on iPads and Android tablets. Our instructors are available 365 days a year to answer your questions, normally within an hour or 2. All lessons are fully narrated and exercises are presented in several ways, not just multiple-choice questions. We provide mock exams to help you prepare for the real thing and, when the time comes, you can arrange your own invigilator, so there’s no need to attend an examination centre. If you don’t quite make the grade we give you extra support and you can have unlimited resits. Successful students receive a RYA Course Completion Certificate which can be used to support a RYA Practical Course or a professional qualification including an MCA Master 200 Exam.
