    To operate a water going vessel, smaller or equal to 9 meters with an engine larger than 15 hp – jet skis included – on dams, rivers, sea and in harbors in South Africa, a skipper license is required.

    With the fast pace of modern life it is not always possible to organize a day or two to sit in a classroom. In some cases, people have to travel far to reach an approved facility.

    As recently as June 2015 the only option you had was to attend a 1 – 2 day course with an approved SAMSA facility. You now have the option to study in your own time in the comfort of your home or office.

    The online course covers the SAMSA syllabus for the ‘R’ (Inland waters) and ‘E’ (1 Nautical Mile Sea) entry level licenses. A holder of a R-license can upgrade to an E-license the moment he/she has the necessary sea hours – without doing another course.

    How does it work?
    1. Cover the 7 modules in the comfort of your home, in your own time and only continue to the next module once feeling comfortable with the current module. There is no time limit set to complete the course.

    2. You will have a message system which you can use to get support or ask questions.

    3. There is a quiz at the end of each module and, if you use it to test yourself honestly, we can guarantee that you will pass the SAMSA examination paper.

    4. On the completion of all the modules, you will receive a certificate stating that you have completed the online course successfully.

    5. You can then contact an approved SAMSA examiner and arrange to write the SAMSA exam. Registered SAMSA examiners, affiliated to Skippers Online are published on our website. Most examiners will allow you to write the exam on a date and time which suits you. No need to wait for a future examination date!

    5. On successful completion of the examination the examiner will issue you with an interim license which is valid for 6 months. The examiner will submit all your documents to SAMSA who in turn will issue your permanent license during the 6 month period.
