Holders of captain licenses can rent a boat anywhere in the world. However, the role of our training centre does not end there. Each year we organise for our graduates meetings, joint sailing tours and crossings. We also rent boats to them under special conditions. With many of them we have become friends for life.

A radiotelephone course is sometimes also taught as part of the Captain´s Course (for some types of standard licenses this course is not required). The course lasts one day and applicants receive relevant textbooks. Captain´s licenses are issued if exams are passed successfully, and a "limited radio telephonist license" (for C voyages) or a "general radio telephonist license" are awarded (for voyages "B" and "A").

The courses do not condition each other, i.e. who owns a "limited radio telephonist license" does not have to participate in the radio telephonist course (or pay it) and vice versa.

After the radio telephonist course and theory lessons, applicants have 14 days for self-study, followed by a state exam before a committee appointed by the Maritime Office of the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic. The exam is taken either in Brno or Prague, as agreed with the clients.

One week later, an exam is taken before an exam committee of the Czech Telecommunication Office - Department of the Frequency Spectrum Management.
