Passage Planning 1 day course

Our team provide support and help you understand the concepts and theory of Passage Planning

What we cover 

At Captain Barry Sadler Maritime Training Academy, we understand how  challenging the stability priciples and calculations can be but, also how important they are. That’s why we offer 121 sessions to  provide the best posible chance of opasssing first time or to off supoort if you need to resist.
