This highly specialised introductory course is now available online as twice-weekly 1900 (GMT) interactive sessions (over seven weeks). Open to members at an exclusive member rate, but also available to non – members.  

We strongly recommend you attend the Course Introduction module on the 15th  of February, even if you have only purchased a single module. If you’re unable to attend the 15th please feel welcome to join us anytime from the 17th of February with Maine Law which is due to be presented by an external speaker.

Course leader, Andy Cunningham will lead you through the Brokerage process and will be supported by a host of industry external speakers on topics such as Insurance and Finance. 

Learn the fundamental skills of Professional Marine Yacht Brokerage and progress your career path. Join fellow ABYA Members at prestigious brokerages who have also completed this course.   

A commercial Law Firm will be presenting the latest developments to Marine Law. 

To really gain the full benefit of what this course offers we highly recommend taking the course as a whole, however, modules are available to book separately.
