The RYA Powerboat Level 2 is a popular two-day practical course. With no prior experience needed you can quickly become a confident and certified RIB driver.
Our course includes the Coastal Endorsement and covers the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat confidently and unsupervised. This course also forms the basis of the International Certificate of Competence (ICC - Power).
The course focuses on low-speed close-quarter handling, coming alongside, mooring on a buoy, man overboard recovery as well as an introduction to driving at planing speed plus collision regulations.
After the course you will be capable of driving a RIB safely, aware of your own limitations and those of the boat.
The two-day course runs 9.30am - 5.30pm on both days of chosen course dates. It is run with a minimum of 2 students + instructor and a maximum of 3 students, to ensure you have plenty of opportunity to practice driving. The certificate is based on continual assessment, so there are no exams.
There are no course pre-requisites although it is useful to have some basic navigation skills. Students must be aged 16 or over. Students aged 12-16 may take part if accompanied by a parent or guardian and will receive an endorsed certificate.
You should not undertake this course if you are pregnant and we recommend you consult a doctor before booking if you suffer from back problems.
