The Diploma in Maritime Studies is designed with a mix of learning outcomes, some relating to underpinning knowledge and others to competence. Students will learn about lifting and moving motorboats and yachts, mooring and berthing vessels, moving loads in boatyards, maintaining marinas and boatyard equipment, and much more. The student will be expected to complete 10 mandatory Units (36 QCF credit points) and five optional Units (at least 23 QCF credit points).

To achieve the apprenticeship the student will complete the following:
• A portfolio of evidence of competence
• A Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) booklet
• An Employee and Employers Rights booklet
• ICT, Maths and English as a functional skill (this is waived if the apprentice has achieved C grade and above in these subjects for GCSEs)

The work-based training will be carried out primarily at CHC's Shepards Wharf Marina.

There is no requirement for the student to attend college as the apprentice will be assessed on site by a designated college assessor on a six to 12 weekly cycle.
