RYA POWERBOAT LEVEL 1 COURSE - Duration 1 day

This is a 1 day course which provides a practical and theoretical introduction to boat handling and safety in powerboats.
No previous experience is required. The minimum age for candidates is 12 years, and those under the age of 16 years will be issued with an endorsed certificate.
RYA POWERBOAT LEVEL 2 COURSE (Coastal) - Duration 2 days
Course Fee: 450 Euros
A 2 day course, in both theory and practical sessions, which teaches boat handling and seamanship in powerboats.
This is a more in-depth course and provides the student with the knowledge for self-sufficient powerboating at a basic level.
Whilst no previous experience is necessary, this course may be preceded by Level 1 but this is not mandatory.
The minimum age for candidates is 12 years, and those under the age of 16 years will be issued with an endorsed certificate.
Note: Powerboat Level 2 is also the pre-requisite for the ICC (International Certificate of Competence), for which a separate application can be made to the RYA upon successful completion of the course.
The ICC can only be issued to British nationals and residents, and to nationals of any North American country, or any country that is not a member of UNECE.
There are NO EXTRA CHARGES relating to any of the above practical courses!!! All course fees are FULLY INCLUSIVE of fuel costs, berthing charges and wet weather clothing (not often required!!!).
