Your Safety at Sea is Our First Priority

Due to ongoing health issues we are no longer able to offer Power Boat, Diesel Engine or Essential Navigation Courses.

We hope to be able to offer VHF SRC Marine Radio Classroom based courses in the near future.

A big thank you to all those who have completed courses or contacted us in the past, we have enjoyed working for you and it is with a heavy heart we had to make this decision. Thank You all!

RYA VHF Short Range Certificate

If you use a  Marine VHF radio fitted with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) including VHF DSC hand held radios, it is required by law that you hold the VHF RADIO Short Range Certificate (SRC) Operators Licence. If you hold the ‘old’, pre 1999, VHF Licence (Restricted) you need to upgrade your qualification to the VHF Short Range Certificate to operate any of the newer Digital Selective Calling radios.

Estuary Training Sea School provides RYA and bespoke courses for both the Maritime Professional and Leisure Sailors.

At Estuary Training we are able to offer a variety of courses tailored to your requirements, from Royal Yachting Association certified courses through to bespoke very personalised courses.

We cover Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Liverpool, the Northwest and Northern England but we can travel to save you staff downtime and expenses.

We offer one to one or group packages, at your club or other premises, subject to suitability, and courses can be tailored to your personal requirements.
Our Goal is to provide the best customer service possible.

We want to make the learning experience enjoyable. We are dedicated to serving our customer's needs, and our goal is 100% customer satisfaction. We strive to bring you the best in quality service. If something isn't right, please let us know.
