Theoretical classes: See calendars and times in the “Course Dates and Registration” tab. Pedagogical support through the e-learning platform Moodle. The exam date on the calendar is only indicative, as it depends on the prior completion of the theoretical and practical training. Candidates should consider taking some additional lessons if, after the regular lessons, they are not sufficiently prepared to pass the exam. These classes are free of charge.
Practical classes: The legal regulations define 10 hours of practical classes, but at Longitude you will get high level practical training. You will have practical classes on two boats with completely different typologies. You will learn how to drop off and dock from a pier, how to anchor, and how to man overboard, among other things. The goal is to have the autonomy to govern a pleasure craft after finishing their training. The dates of the practical classes marked on the course calendar are merely indicative. The respective appointment will be made during the lecture classes and will depend on the weather.

Theoretical classes at Rua da Praia da Saúde, 11 – A, Setúbal (in front of the Lota); see facilities
