Default Help finding training to handle a yacht

Anyone out there that can recommend any web sites for power yacht schools that can provide several days or weeks on proper handling of a 40-60 vessel? All subjects such as docking, engine maintenance, off shore travel, basically the whole 9 yards that at least would give me some pretty good familiarization with a vessel. Thanks in advance.

In the USA, the Power Squadron link: United States Power Squadrons® Safe boating fun thru education

Or, the US Coast Guard Auxiliary link: Welcome to the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Official Web Portal

both are volunteer organizations which can provide low cost boating courses and can provide you with additional information.
