What is a commercial endorsement?, do I need one?, which courses do I need?

You need a commercial endorsement if you want to work commercially in the marine industry. The rules differ between UK operation and overseas but the RYA commercially endorsed qualifications are recognised worldwide but you need to check locally and which Flag State the vessel is operating under.


For all commercial endorsements you will need :-


  1. Professional Practices and Responsibilities on-line course
    (we will be offering this very soon)


  1. First Aid Certificate


  1. Sea Survival Qualification


  1. VHF/SRC Qualification



  1. You will also need a medical, either a ML5 (for category 2 to 6 operation) or an

ENG1 (for category 0 or 1 operation).
These can be organised through an MCA approved doctor.


  1. And finally you will need to pass the course relevant to your proposed operating area as detailed in the list :-
