“Amfora” Diving Club in Stara Novalja organises certificate courses for A and B Category Skipper.

This three day course normally lasts from Wednesday to Friday with the exam taking place on Saturday in front of the Port Authority. A time that fits your wishes can be arranged which is particularly useful outside the tourist season. For the candidates who do not reside on the island we offer a Friday to Sunday course with accommodation. You will spend a pleasant weekend of relaxation, fun and a get a certificate at the end at an affordable price.

THE COURSE FEE INCLUDES: 8 taught classes, 2 practical training classes, a manual, examination committee and required paperwork fees as well as bank transfer fees, your Skipper Certificate photograph. If a candidate doesn’t pass the exam, we will refund the complete course fee.

Taught classes are held  in a well equipped classroom (manual, computer, overhead projector, nautical maps and triangles, compasses, models, boat mooring devices and so on). You get to keep the manual since you might find it useful as a reminder in navigation. The manual is in compliance with the B Category Skipper Examination Program. Numerous images and case studies will keep you interested and help you with your studies (for more information on the manual, click the link on the right). We have arranged a list of frequent exam questions that will help you in passing your exam.

A and B Category Skipper Manual by Dražen Peranić is in compliance with the B Category Skipper Examination and has been authorised by the Ministry. It is intended for candidates who are preparing for the skipper exam, but can also be a useful reminder later on. It is 80 pages long with five chapters: Maritime Navigation, Motorism and Protective Measures, Seamanship, Meteorology, First Aid Care and Regulations, Manoeuvring the Boat and Avoiding Collision at Sea, Maritime Radio – Service. The text is written in an easy and understandable way. A large number of images make the material easily mastered in a very short time.

Practical training are executed on the boat. You can choose between a speedboat training (engine power: 40 kW), a wooden motorboat (engine power: 35 kW) or a rubber-boat (engine power: 15 kW). You will learn how to moor a boat in port or at sea, how to anchor it and what to do is your anchor is stuck. You will learn how to manoeuvre a boat in different situations, how to sail the boat near the coast and at open sea as well as get a lot of practical advice.
