    Many of the pages on this Training Support site are restricted to RYA training centres or those holding various qualifications within the RYA's coaching schemes. You will therefore find your way around the site more easily if you have registered on the site and signed in from the start.

    There are two types of account: personal accounts and recognised training centre accounts. So that you can access the parts of this site that are relevant to you, please make sure you are signed in to the correct account. For example, a centre Principal may have two accounts - one for the training centre and one for their own personal use. Their training centre account will allow them to see pages and carry out tasks relevant to the centre which their personal account may not have access to.
