Our Powerboat Course is for those wanting to drive small open powerboats such as RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), sports boats and small launches. These boats are generally powered by an outboard engine, do not normally have accommodation on board, and so are not intended for extended cruises. They may be used for short coastal or inland trips, fishing, safety cover for water-sports, water-skiing, or as a support boat for diving. Whether you use powerboats for leisure or work, or in connection with another activity such as sailing or rescue, we have a course for you.

Powerboat Course Level 1 & 2 is a two-day course providing the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. It includes close quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, man overboard recovery and collision regulations. The course can be taken inland or on the coast and your certificate will be endorsed accordingly.

Courses can be taken either onboard a centre’s boat or on your own boat and you can enter at any level, provided you have the relevant experience beforehand. Be realistic when assessing your current experience and abilities and, if in doubt, discuss your requirements before booking your course.
