"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"
"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"
It is a requirement to complete a 25 multiple-choice question exam, included in the online course, with a successful pass mark of 80% (20 correct) before participating in wet drill activities.
On completion of 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.
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 paid for directly with the centre you complete them with.
