Welcome to the Bravo Fleet Academy! All modules here are open to all members of Bravo Fleet, but it's recommended that you start with the New Member Program.

If this is your first time here, you will need to create an account, which is separate from your BFMS account. During the registration process, you will be prompted to link your BFMS and Moodle accounts by providing your BFMS ID. You will also then be able to enrol in each of the modules separately.

    Available courses
