Learn to skipper a powerboat, and take charge safely on passages with friends and family, or be able to hire a powerboat in the UK or abroad. You will need this 2-Day RYA PowerBoat Level 2 (Coastal/Tidal) Course if you want to be safe & legal.

You don't need to do the Level 1 first, and no prior experience is required. It's a pretty packed two-days, however, and close-quarters berthing, high-speed, anchoring, mooring, navigation, ropework, emergencies and man-over-board recovery are all part of the course, as well many other safety and operational topics such as launch and recovery are covered.
The courses are 2 Days with Arrival from 0845hrs at our LargsCentre with a max of 3 per power boat. Return is for about 1700hrs and each day is spent on board either on the Firth of Clyde & Islands or Loch Lomond.
Training takes place during the day on a teaching and continual-assessment basis so there is no exam or test. This is designed as an enjoyable powerboating experience with RYA Training.

The new Photo-I.D. style licence certificate for the National PowerBoat Certificate was introduced in 2011, and registered centrally on the RYA National Database - you need to bring a passport-sized photo with you. You can use this certificate to hire powerboats worldwide, acquire the ICC International Certificate of Competence and even get it Commercially Endorsed to allow the holder to legally work as a powerboat skipper. Most insurance companies also accept this as evidence of competence if you want to own a powerboat.
