What makes our SRL course unique?

Our SRL course is the newest and most practical skipper training course in NZ and on successful completion of all course requirements, you will be awarded the New Zealand Certificate in Domestic Maritime Operations.

Take a look at what sets the SiS Training & Consulting course apart from other SRL courses …


In-class TRB Completion

Our course is designed so that you complete your Training Record Book in class with the guidance of your tutor.

Your tutors will then sign off the tasks in your TRB, so you have one less thing to worry about during your sea time requirements.


Guided Learning

You will be paired with a tutor from the time you enrol to help you from start to finish.

We’ve designed a student activity book that will help you learn more about your operation and collect diagrams and procedures that you’ll need for your Training Record Book during our block course.


Practical Application

To ensure you get both the theoretical and practical skills to be successful in your new career, we have designed this course for people who would rather be learning on the water.

Topics will be introduced in a classroom, which you will then put into practice on a working commercial vessel. Practical sessions are strategically scheduled to consolidate and assess learning.
