RYA listings


You can help promote your training centre to new customers by having an entry in our two web searches: Where's My Nearest and 'Course Search'.

Where's My Nearest is intended for people who know which course they want to take and just need to find a centre which runs it.

Course Search guides those who don't know which course to take through the various options available, culminating in a list of centres which run the course they choose.

There are two options for including your centre in these searches:

Option 1

A standard, free of charge listing automatically given to all RYA recognised training centres (unless opted out).

To check your current listing go to Where's My Nearest and find your centre by name using the Organisation Search. If any changes are required, notify us by completing the Option 1 amendment form.

Option 2

Additional information, links and your logo alongside the standard Option 1 listing, giving enhanced information about your centre and the way you offer courses. Annual fee: £31 plus VAT (£37.20).

This enhanced listing can be booked by completing the Option 2 booking form

Opting out

If your centre doesn't offer training courses to the public you might not want it listed in the search at all. For example, centres run by the armed forces, or that run courses purely for staff training should not be advertised to the public who would not be able to take a course there.

If you wish to opt out of the searches please email us.


Training centre listings on www.rya.org.uk use information supplied to the RYA by training centres. The RYA is not responsible for the accuracy of the information or mapping of the centre’s operating base. If any errors are found please use the form above to advise RYA Training of the corrections required.

The RYA cannot guarantee that searches will function without interruption or be error free, or that the search facility will be available at all times. The RYA will not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss, loss of profit, revenue or goodwill arising from any errors or downtime.

The mapping of centres will be based on the address of the operating base, which may be different to a centre’s correspondence address. If there are multiple training centres operating within a small area (for example in a single marina) the RYA will endeavour to separate the mapping of each training centre sufficiently so that all can been seen in the web search but still within the same area. Priority will be given to centres whose entire operation is based at that location, rather than those that simply keep training boats there.
