I have completed the MCA-approved Navigation & Radar (OOW Yachts)/NARAS (Master Yachts) module, is this accepted as an MCA-approved ECDIS course?

Answer:

No. The MCA-approved merchant navy NARAS/NAEST course at the operational or management level (completed on or after 1 January 2005) is approved as an ECDIS course, but the yacht courses are not as they are much shorter and include only a small amount of ECDIS content.
