Who Needs The PPR Certificate?

All new applicants for a Commercially Endorsed RYA / MCA Certificate of Competence must first pass the PPR Course.    Anyone renewing a Commerical Endorsement must pass the PPR Course prior to their next renewal date, if they haven't already done so.


Persons Exempt From PPR Requirement:

If you hold an MCA Deck Officers' Certificate of Competence, as Officer of the Watch (OOW), Master 200, Master 500 or above then you do not need to take the PPR course.     When applying for a Commercial Endorsement please send a copy of your MCA Certificate with your application or renewal form.


RYA PPR Course Information

The PPR Course is split into four main modules:


  1. Commercial Environment 2. People
  3. Vessel 4. Purpose


The course is compatible with PC / Mac / iPad and can be completed in around 6-8 hours.    Full RYA Instructor support is provided where required, although this course includes all online resources required to learn and complete through self-learning.


The course is made up of e-learning on commercial maritime topics e.g. laws and regulations, risk assessments, qualifications and certifications for staff and vessels, and safe working practices.   These will be followed by quizzes to check your knowledge.


When you have completed there is an online assessment which is to be completed, where upon completion you will be able to download your PPR Course Completion Certificate.
