Under the new standard, from January 2022, all persons wishing to issue a Skipper book will be required to attend a basic safety course of no more than three days. It will cover basics such as how to use a lifejacket, first aid, water rescue, and more.
Again, be aware that it matters where you do this course. Each country has its own class certified by the water and shipping authorities. Basic knowledge of German or English is sufficient if you want to do this course in Germany or the Netherlands.
Here you can find contact details and information for the introductory safety course for each country’s navigation office.
Our Sailor training program will also take care of this.
