This certificate is a worldwide requirement if you are using any VHF radio hand held or installed on your Yacht or Tender.
Our Maritime School offers several courses and levels that can be
instructed on board of your yacht or vessel.
We can even come to other Islands to do courses on board when the yacht is not coming to St.Maarten-St.Martin.
Several Cruise Lines and large yachts come to the Maritime School to do STCW'95 basic courses or refreshing courses which are instructed from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm during one day every week for six weeks so that they have a complete and full course over time.
