How are the assessments done on the Splash theory course?

There are two assessments on the Day Skipper Course - one is the General Paper which is completed and marked online. The other Chartwork paper requires you to send your plots in for marking - this can either be by posting your chart in, or by scanning and e-mailing the images to your tutor.

The Yachtmaster course has two online papers - Meteorology and Collision Regulations then the third Chartwork paper which is submitted for marking as for Dayskipper.

The Essential Navigation course has no formal assessment, and certificate award is based on tutor assessment.
