The theory portion of the MOY 200T is a 6 day classroom course, consisting of both assessment papers and written examinations. Prior study and practical experience is required before the start of the test (listed below). Students shouldn’t expect to learn everything in one week without prior study.
Minimum entry requirements:
One must hold or obtain a Marine Communications VHF-SRC Radio Operators certificate.
One must hold or obtain all STCW’10 certificates. STCW certificates must be valid (not expired).
Candidates must provide documented evidence of boating experience such as:
Please Note: A candidate may take both endorsements, however, it is highly recommended that he or she have some hands-on practical experience and sea time on both power and sailing vessels before attempting the exam. The practical exam is not the forum for learning basic skills. Candidates may sit the shore-based course prior to having all the above requirements. Verification of the above yachting experience must be original and signed by the skipper of the yacht in which the candidate was sailing. Candidates claiming sea time during times when they were acting as skipper may sign their own entries but independent verification may be required.
