The Training Record Book (TRB) is part of the qualification requirements for the Officer of the Watch (Yachts) Certification – OOW (Y).
You need to have the tasks and duties signed off by your captain to show that you have completed each one.
When fully completed it must be presented to the examiner at the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) when you attend to sit your OOW oral examination.
The PYA recommends that you take at least one year to complete the tasks in the TRB - do not try to rush them through before your oral exam.
Paid up PYA members are entitled to a printed and bound Training Record Book free of charge if applicable.
For non-members, the fee for a Training Record Book is €30.00.
