The BKB (101) and BCC (103) certificates were designed to be taken in about 4 days for
each course. Bliss may extend more sessions if the student needs additional experience
to feel confident. This is unlikely since you will be on task 100% of the time with Bliss
courses. The typical class at other schools may put 4 or more people on a boat and thus
your time on task is divided by the other students…

* – Challenge is for those who have previous sailing experience and would like to “test out’ of
a course. You must have a valid stamp for prerequisite courses. You will take a written
exam and be given an on the water check…
