 School Holiday Programme


Our next school holiday programme will be during the 2017 April School Holidays.

Over 4 days we will lead students through a programme that will include the full Day Skipper AND Maritime VHF Radio Operator courses! Both of these courses offer the opportunity to earn NZQA credits*!

An optional extra session will put you afloat on aboard one of our training boats where you will get to use the material we've covered in the programme. 

Your programme leader will be none other than Coastguard Northern Region's very own "Yoda" also known as Robb Henry. Robb is one of our long term volunteers with over 25 years with Waiheke Rescue and last year was selected as Coastguard NZ's Volunteer of the year. Robb is passionate about boating and ensuring people have the knowledge and skills to be competent and safe on the water.

* An extra administration charge is payable if Coastguard has to load these onto the NZQA framework
