Small Vessel Operator Proficiency (SVOP)

Small Vessel Operator Proficiency (SVOP)

The four-day training program addresses the particular need for minimum training of operators of commercial vessels, other than tugs and fishing vessels, up to 5 Gross Tonnage engaged on a near coastal, class 2 or a sheltered waters voyage, and for fishing vessels up to 15 gross tonnage or 12 meters overall length engaged on a near coastal, class 2 (including an inland voyage on Lake Superior or Lake Huron) or a sheltered waters voyage.  


In 2023 when Transport Canada changes the SVOP to SVOC (Small Vessel Operator Competency), your SVOP training will not expire.  The SVOP will be equivalent to the four-day basic module and you will only need one day of training to upgrade to the SVOC.

Total SVOP Course fee $745

$660 (+ $85 HST)
