Under 16.5m Skipper’s Ticket Renewal
Your Skipper’s Ticket has to be renewed every 5 years by attending a free Safety Awareness refresher course (if your first one was before 2012) and sending a form to Seafish.
If you do not renew within 6 months, you will have to comply with the current requirements (i.e., Approved Engine Course for the Unrestricted ticket and Advanced Stability Awareness).
We are offering Safety Awareness course on 7 December in Looe and on 21 January 2019 in Newlyn.
