Gain your Coxswain Grade 1 Certificate...
A Coxswain can take control of a ferry, water taxi, jet boat, yacht, catamaran, tourism vessel and a variety of work boats.
The Coxswain Grade 1 certificate is an Australian qualification that can be easily transferred to the Maritime NZ qualification Skipper Restricted Limits, allowing you to work in NZ.
This Australian course MAR20318 Certificate II in Maritime Operations (Coxswain Grade 1 NC) is shorter than our SRL course, though there are higher sea time requirements. Check the comparison chart.

WHAT PAST STUDENTS SAY …
Skipper Training helped really by keeping the course going, when Covid hit we were only in our second week of the course. If they didn’t keep the course going I wouldn’t have my SRL ticket today.
The team at Skipper training NZ work well together meaning you get a great training experience both in the classroom and hands on. A great set up.
They did everything they could in their capacity to help us succeed.
Absolutely amazing skipper training school that is hands on and is really fun! Would definitely recommend.
