The Stability course is a component module of the MCA Master certification.
The MCA Stability for Workboats, Pilot Boats and SCV’s is a management level course that explores the principles of ship stability at a practical level. The aim is to understand stability principles rather than testing mathematical ability in their application. Emphasis is placed upon those aspects of the subject which can affect the work of a large yacht master. Many of the principles will be illustrated by practical examples in the classroom and therefore a revision of basic algebra and trigonometry will benefit the student.
Previous Experience Required
