This assessment is a pre-entry requirement for the RYA Powerboat Instructor course and includes the opportunity to brush up on your personal powerboat handling skills. A high standard of driving, seamanship and personal knowledge is required - all to the ability of Powerboat Level 2.
We know its not always easy to jump into a new boat and that you may be a little rusty in your RYA powerboat handling skills, so we offer the option to complete a 0.5 day refresher session + 0.5 day skills assessment; or if you're confident of your skills then you can choose to opt to head straight onto the 0.5 day skills assessment.
Minimum Age: 16
Pre-requisites: RYA Powerboat level 2 certificate
Duration: 0.5 or 1 day
If you meet all the pre-requisites but are still unsure as to whether you're at the required level to pass the skills assessment, feel free to drop us an email detailing your experience & knowledge levels, we will then beable to revert accordingly with suggestions on what to practice prior. You can also review this link for ideas on what and how to prepare..
If you're concerned about your Theory / background knowledge we strongly recommend completing the RYA Essential Navigation & Seamanship Online Course prior to bring you up to speed. Alternatively, have a look at the 'recommended reading' below so you can 'self-study'.
