YDSA Courses and Events

YDSA launched its training pathway - YDSA Academy - in 2019.  Various training opportunities are rolled out for Members to support their own career progression using online modules, practical events and interactive events online. Members are also able to submit other training activities for consideration towards their pathway, leading ultimately to YDSA professional certification for Members. All events count towards a member's Continuous Professional Development points.

YDSA offers more events throughout the year to assist Surveyors and Designers in their professional development and provide great networking opportunities. These include visits to factories or boatyards, practical training days, our annual London Conference in March and our Certifying Authority training day during the Southampton Boat Show each year.
