Course Booking

Bookings will not be confirmed until the full course fee has been received by The Seamanship Centre. Places will be held for 48 hours to allow candidates to contact The Seamanship Centre to make payment.


We use PayPal, most Credit & Debit cards and can take card payment by phone.

As is standard with card transactions there is a 2% booking fee for payments made by credit card. We are unable to take payments from card details sent by email – please call to make any payments.

For company bookings – please send purchase orders by email, stating student name, course title and date, ensuring full invoice details are enclosed.

We do not refund payment if the candidate does not attend.


Once a booking has been confirmed by The Seamanship Centre, notification to cancel must be received no less than 2 weeks before the commencement of the course.

We regret that cancellations will result in the retention of the course fee.

The Seamanship Centre will endeavour to run every course as advertised, but reserve the right to cancel courses should there be insufficient student numbers. An alternative date will be offered.

Any concerns can be addressed to the Managing Director email:
