The SLC examination is a comprehensive test of your sailing knowledge skills. Specifically, this examination is required to be passed to gain the SLC International Sailing License and every 3 years thereafter to remain current. You should take this examination AFTER you have completed all the Bareboat Charter Master courses.
If you planning on skippering a sailboat on a sailing vacation in the Mediterranean or Seychelles, you are required to have a Sailing License. The SLC is accepted by all port authorities and yacht charter companies worldwide. For the SLC license, there are other requirements as well; see the SLC requirements here.
Competent and knowledgeable skippers should be able to breeze through this test. If you have trouble, it is an indication that you are not properly prepared. The test will take approximately 3-4 hours of time. There is no time limit and no cost.

This is a good comprehensive examination. It is not difficult if you have honestly done the course work. If not, you don't have any chance of passing this exam.

This course is a good refresher and should be taken by all sailors who havent been out on the water for a while. It is comprehensive and nudges the memory box to get the questions right.

A good summary of the other courses I took for my SLC license.

The course designer(s) took an in-depth subject with many moving parts and made it both interactive and fun. They break down the content in byte size pieces and make sure the student has a grasp on each area of study before moving on.

Not a course but rather just an exam. Challenging to get 100% but all the essential stuff you should know (closed book).

The clarity of the information in the training modules including interactive graphics and clear illustrations were excellent.
You are sailing east and see this navigation mark ahead. Should you turn to port or starboard?

Thanks for your quick reply. I like your approach based on sound theory and emphasis on the practical skills (my approach too in my area of work). Thanks for the link to the article and for the time you take to answer my questions. Be assured that I will recommend NauticEd far and wide (and also to our local sailing school).
