Course Syllabus

At the end of 2023, the MCA revised the syllabus for the Small Ships Navigation & Radar course. It is now in two parts:

Part 1 - 3 day Small Ships Electronic Charting System (approved) and Bridge Watchkeeping.
Part 2 - 2 day Small Ships Radar and Meteorology

Certificates will be issued for each part of the new MCA Small Ships Navigation and Radar course which is currently the only course approved by the MCA to meet the training requirements for Electronic Chart Systems and Radar in Workboat Code 3. Both certificates are required to meet the requirements for both the Radar and Electronic Charts. We teach this course using our Transas & Raymarine simulators.

MGN 691 was released by the MCA in December 2023 which confirms existing seafarers who have completed the SQA Units for Electronic Chart Systems and Radar training will continue to be able to use these certificates as evidence of meeting the training requirements for Workboat Code edition 2 and 3, they will also met the training requirements for vessels under the Brown Code once they transfer to WBC3.
