Course Overview

This is the most popular powerboat qualification and the course is a practical introduction to boat handling skills and provides the background knowledge needed by the competent powerboat driver.

By the end of the two-day course you should be capable of handling small powerboats safely and in a seaman like way. The course is 100% training with any assessment built in, which gives plenty of time for practicing manoeuvres and correcting faults.

You will learn how to launch and recover from a road trailer, high and low speed manoeuvres and seamanship skills such as man-overboard recovery and anchoring
