Hello help needed

Help guys,

First, Let me start by introducing myself ,
I am a 27 year old Lebanese citizen .
I d like to get some information about becoming a yacht master on motor cruising boats.
But noting that I have no previous experience in this field at all i have been checking a school called blue oyster sailing to enroll in a fast track motor cruising course , if anyone has been in any of their courses.
Secondly, if you have some recommendations for fast track schools for motor cruising would be very helpful, along with their websites or telephone number.
Looking forward to a reply
Regards,
Rachel Habib

Re: Hello help needed

You're really looking for a Maritime Academy. Does your Country have one?

If not, then you'll have to go somewhere that does have one that will let you in. If you know what countries someone from Lebanon is forbidden entry, if you list them, then maybe someone would tell you the nearer ones. Generally speaking, those of the west produce better qualified personnel than those of the far east, though that may be changing.

Re: Hello help needed

Both the Australian Maritime Academy and the California Maritime Academy have programs, but they are multi-year commitments.

Does that fit in your "fast track" frame?

Re: Hello help needed

UK comes to mind due to english language and maritime history, why not try some google searches while waiting for recommendations?
