Ft. Lauderdale-based Edge Yachts will give away four courses this year to deck officers working their way up to master, including a HELM course, Advanced Fire Fighting, Proficiency in Medical, and ECDIS. Draws will take place throughout the year.

“Edge Yachts values the captains and officers who work tirelessly to ensure the world’s yachts are running safely,” said Anthony Sands, founder and director of Edge Yachts. “We have created the EDGEucation Scholarship as a way to give back by promoting education for promising officers who display enthusiasm and ambition on their career path to a captain’s ticket.”

The HELM drawing is April 26; Advanced Fire Fighting is June 7; Proficiency in Medical is Oct. 17; and ECDIS is Nov. 4.

All entrants must hold a current, valid OOW shore-based module certificate. To enter, visit www.edgeyachts.com/scholarship. Winners will be notified by email and will have a year to complete the course.
