HOW LONG SHOULD I SUBSCRIBE FOR?
Our subscription is totally flexible, you can cancel any time. Some of our learners only want to work through the course content for a few weeks to brush up on their skills and others want to use the platform as an ongoing support tool and subscribe for longer. You only need to pay as long as you want access to course content and you can cancel your subscription anytime.
HOW DO I CANCEL
Cancelling is dead easy, just go to Activities>Subscriptions in the main menu and choose which subscription you'd like to cancel. Your access will remain open for as long as you've paid for, so if you've just paid for a month you will have access for the rest of that month but will not be charged again.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I COMPLETE THE COURSE?
Each of our courses contain assessments throughout the content, once you've completed a course and passed the assessment you will receive a certificate which can be downloaded, printed, or added to your LinkedIn profile.
IS THERE A TEST AT THE END?
Yes, each course is set out slightly differently depending on the content and the level but there are assessments throughout. You can take the assessment as many times as you like, so if you don't pass the first time, go back and review the course and you can try again.
WHY ARE THE COURSES SO CHEAP?
First of all, we're a charity, we believe seafarers deserve access to life enhancing education wherever they are in the world and we don't think that anyone's financial circumstances should get in the way of completing one of our courses. We deliberately sell the courses at a price well below the commercial rate so that everyone can afford access. The reason we can afford to do this is thanks to the generous support of the International Foundation for Aids to Navigation who have funded much of the development costs for the programme.

WHAT IS A LEARNER CREDIT AND HOW DO I USE IT?
A learner credit gives one month access to a course, premium courses require two learner credits. Learner credits offer you the flexibility to support your learners without the need to pre-select courses or time needed to complete. Just allocate a number of learner credits which can be topped up.
We have a wide range of courses on our platform, which support both personal and professional development from those coming into the maritime sector to those experienced seafarers wishing to upskill. Each course is worth either one credit or two learner credits for one month’s access
For example, instead of buying 50 Maths@sea courses, you can now buy learner credits which can be used towards any course monthly for any number of months, it’s entirely up to you!!
When your employee/learner has decided what course they want to do, they simply put the learner credits in the shopping basket and select the course they want, at the click of button.
