Join Our e Learning Academy


What is our e learning Academy?

We have developed a brand new type of distance learning. Our  orals prep e learning  academy is a cloud-based solution that provides instant online access to the full range  of Barry’s MCA orals preparation training materials. In addition it also allows access to our app which can be used to view the content offline.

What do you see?

Once signed in, you will be presented with a clear, intuitive and easy-to-use interface where you can view the course structure. The e learning academy is well structured worth over 250 hours worth of videos and takes you through over 36 modules in order.  The system also  tracks  your individual progress as you complete each specific module.

What are the modules?

Our modules, range from Collision Regulations, passage planning, ship handling and recordings of our live, interactive,  twice weekly interactive Microsoft Teams tutorials. All our modules are aligned to the MCA orals exam syllabus and our suite of modules keeps increasing! Each module houses video tutorials, Quizzes,  e books, module resources,  mind maps and current associated information.

What else is included?

As well as access to the e learning academy and mobile offline app, we also provide  two live interactive tutorial clinics each week so that your learning is mentored as appose to be isolated while you learn.

How does this help me?

A clearly presented report allows you to locate weaknesses in your learning and take action by customising your subsequent training accordingly to ensure you are supported in areas that are more of a challenge. The learning academy  can be used in conjunction with face-to-face or Microsoft Teams sessions or as a supplement to your own revision.

What Our Students Say

The online course has been the best investment of my cadetship. It prepared me to such an extent, I walked in to my Oral feeling confident in my abilities and knowledge. The subjects are easy to understand and in bite sized chunks. Definitely well worth it and I highly recommend it!

Using Barry Sadler is a must!! A massive thank you to Barry and Stephanie. Both help immensely to develop the best methods to progress me through my Masters. The online learning package helped in more ways than one and allows the candidate to revise/learn as and when they want. Well worth the investment.
