With the average age of those involved in the industry increasing , the Seafish Industry Training Associations proposal was to address this by providing an opportunity for those who are involved in the industry, to work towards a Class II Skippers Qualification. By attaining this qualification it provides those with the opportunity to continue to develop professionally whilst continuing to work within the industry.

The popular course developed a range of skills in the use of electronic navigation systems, General Operators Certificate in radio and advanced fire fighting which required a considerable level of commitment and dedication in order to complete.
