This endorsement is highly sought-after, especially by maritime tourism operators.

Achieve order out of chaos in one afternoon

This one-day session will test your communication skills and leadership through a range of real-time scenarios. This will not only breed confidence in you but also help you deal with the unexpected - an imperative out in the workplace and especially so in the maritime industry.

Once you have your SRL certificate and six months of sea services on a commercial passenger vehicle, you can perform a skipper’s (master’s) functions and duties on passenger ships less than 12 metres in length overall, carrying any number of passengers within restricted limits (which includes both enclosed and inshore limits).

Imagine operating a charter boat in the Abel Tasman National Park or skippering an engine-powered catamaran across the Kaikoura Canyon watching Humpback whales, dolphins and albatross breach for air then dive in search of food. Not too shabby, right?


You will master:

  • A range of leadership skills including strategic thinking
  • Core communication skills such as listening and feedback
  • Maintaining safety and responding to emergencies on a restricted limits vessel including use of safety equipment
  • Proven techniques for handling a crisis, and more
