Mileage Building

For some courses one of the pre–course requirements is the mileage.
We offer you the opportunity to increase your mileage while being trained in some of the most beautiful ocean passages – from our base in Lagos’ Marina to Madeira, Azores or Canary Islands.

Mileage Building is very important if you wish to progress onto a more qualified or professional career.
