About RYA ePacks


What are RYA ePacks?

RYA Recognised Training Centres can offer students the choice to receive an eBook to accompany their RYA course, rather than a printed book.

We have enhanced our eBooks (where possible) by including animations, videos and interactive tools to help illustrate key points and bring the content to life. These eBooks are a fantastic and engaging resource, supporting our world-famous training courses.

The following ePacks are currently available:

  • RYA Marine Radio SRC Course
  • RYA Level 2 Powerboat Handling Course
  • RYA Inland Waterways Helmsman's Course
  • RYA Personal Watercraft Proficiency Course
  • RYA First Aid Course
  • RYA Basic Sea Survival for Small Craft Course

ePack Contents

When you receive an RYA ePack, it'll contain an eBook redemption code, instead of a printed book. All other items in the pack, such as application forms and certificates, remain the same.

Please note: eBook vouchers cannot be used to redeem Apple Books or Google Play Books.

How to Redeem RYA ePack Vouchers

Voucher codes can be used only once, and will redeem the eBook against your email address. You will access your eBook using the RYA Books app on your chosen device(s). If you do not already have an RYA Books account, one will be created for you.

Once you've redeemed your code, you'll receive an email with full instructions for How to: Download RYA eBooks.

Please note: enter your code exactly as it is printed on your redemption voucher. The code is case sensitive.

Follow the instructions below to redeem your ePack voucher:

After you click "Add to Basket", you'll see that an item has been added to your basket in the top-right corner of your screen. Click the icon to view your basket.
