"It was excellent and for me the benefits were in the myriad of little things that I picked up, sometimes new knowledge, sometimes a reinforcement of something that I knew and sometimes a reminder of something that I’d forgotten"

John Stephenson

"I feel much more confident on the water and I am glad that most of the crew I sail with have also done this course and we have a better understanding of keeping ourselves and each other safe on the water"

Assessment
It is a requirement to complete of the course material and supporting questions and then pass a multiple-choice question exam, which is included at the end of the e-learning course. To pass the exam you must achieve  a  minimum of 20 out of 25 correct answers. If you are not successful with your first attempt at sitting the exam you are allowed to review the course materials and sit the exam a second time.

On completion of the course and the theory exam, you will be provided with proof of completion to present at the Australian Sailing accredited SSSC training centre where you will be completing your wet drills.

Practical Training
The practical wet drills and flare demonstrations must be completed within 12 months of completing the e-Learning and exam.

Your Sea Safety & Survival Certificate will be issued on the completion date of the practical wet drills, and by the accredited Australian Sailing centre you completed the wet drills with. Your wet drills are seperate to this course and are paid for directly with the centre you complete them with.

A current list of Wet Drills being run in Australia is available from within the course and via this link.

"They are not only great teachers who are passionate about their subject, but have clearly thought about what works, what doesn't and how to do things better and safer. Really helps you think about how to organise and manage your own boat and crew"
