POWER BOAT COURSES
Hi Rob, The two day power boating course was just what I needed to begin my voyage of discovery with all things boating. Your practical no nonsense approach and calm style was most welcomed. It also helped to have some great students on board with us, as we all learned from each others mistakes and was a bunch of fun as well.
thanks again – and see you soon,
Our RYA recognised school will teach you to skipper a power boat. We can provide a powerboat course on our school boat or can give you tuition on your vessel.
Below is some information about the powerboat course we offer, if you have any queries or want a more personalised service please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Rob on (00351) 916 643 624 for more information.
Powerboat Level 2 (Incorporates Level 1)
This course teaches you the skills and gives the background knowledge needed to drive a motor boat. It is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence (ICC). The minimum age to attend the course is 12 and it is assumed that students have no previous experience.
The maximum number of students on a course is 3, usually there needs to be 2 students to confirm a course unless a student opts for one on one training.
No previous knowledge is assumed and the course will take a minimum of 2 days. There is a large emphasis on the practical side of boating and there is no written test at the end. Topics covered include close quarters handling, high speed manoeuvres, man overboard recovery and collision regulations.
After completing the course you will be a self-sufficient power boater in the right conditions, aware of your own limitations. All going well (my job) your course completion certificate will allow you to rent boats here in the Algarve and further afield.
The Powerboat level 2 certificate can also be achieved by direct assessment. This is for persons who have a lot of good experience under their belt.
