The Inshore Diploma (Förarintyg in English)
The Inshore Diploma (in Swedish Förarintyg) allows you to take the helm onboard!
This course provides basic knowledge in navigation, seamanship and safety. The course consists of two full days and you can chose practical boat training during the course as an option.
Learn the basics of boating during two amazing full days. If you chose boat practice with mooring and navigation exercises it will be performed during the course of the second day. In an efficient and fast pace, we study navigation, collision regulations and safety at sea. During the practical boat training you will try your new skills in real situations and much will fall into place. An inshore Yacht Master Diploma shows you have basic theoretical knowledge and ability to operate a leisure boat inshore and in coastal waters. The course ends with an exam of the NFB's Förarintyg. When the exam is done, hopefully you will have a big smile on your face and your new certificate in your hand: The Inshore Yachtmaster Diploma (Förarintyg).
