To pass the exam you must achieve a  minimum of 20 out of 25 correct answers. If you are not successful with your first attempt at sitting the exam you are allowed to review the course materials and sit the exam a second time.

On completion of the course and the theory exam, you will be provided with proof of completion to present at the Australian Sailing accredited SSSC training center where you will be completing your wet drills.

Your Sea Safety & Survival Certificate will be issued on the completion date of the practical wet drills, and by the accredited Australian Sailing center you completed the wet drills with.
