Gain your Skippers Licence...
through our Skipper Restricted Limits Programme
SRL is an entry level command certificate with engineering components. This allows you to operate commercial vessels up to 12 metres, or up to 24 metres with endorsement in restricted limits.
In most other SRL courses, students need to complete their Training Record Book independently before the block course.
But our course is different.
In our SRL course, you complete your Training Record Book in class with the guidance of a tutor who will also sign off your tasks. Our block course includes practical sessions where your tutor will sign off your Training Record Book.
What makes our SRL course unique?
Our SRL course is the newest and most practical skipper training course in NZ.
