This is a Yachting Australia approved course. For most category 1 offshore races it is a requirement that at least 50% of the crew hold a valid SSSC certificate. For most category 2 races (such as Pittwater to Coffs) it is a requirement that at least 30% of the crew hold a valid SSSC certificate, though it is strongly recommended that for both categories of races all crew members undertake the course. The course deals with both practical and theoretical components. At completion of the course Yachting Australia provides a certificate, which is valid for 5 years.

Dates for the SSSC full course and the SSSC refresher course are being finalised. The Club is working with Teki Dalton to deliver both of these courses, as Teki is the co-author on the course and author to many publications on this important topic. Teki is also an active member of the Alfred's and is considered one of Australia's leading exponents on safety at sea.
