Onboard Crew Training – it’s highly effective, and often more cost efficient, to arrange training onboard for your crew. Using the vessels that the crew are working with, tailored training onboard leads to a better understanding of the yachts’ facilities and resources, and the safety training can be designed specifically towards the yacht and its requirements.
- Level 2 Powerboat Handling course
- Personal Watercraft Proficiency course
- Personal Watercraft Instructor course
Each onboard course is tailored to your dates, timings and requirements to ensure minimum disruption to the daily routine of the yacht.
Level 2 Powerboat Handling course:
The maximum crew numbers on a Powerboat handling course is three. Training can take place on a suitably sized RIB/yacht tender that carries basic safety equipment (RYA vessel checklist will be discussed). The syllabus for the handling course runs over two full days. For experienced ‘tender drivers’, the one-day direct assessment can be arranged.
Personal Watercraft Proficiency course:
The maximum crew numbers on a Personal Watercraft Proficiency course is six, with three PWs in use. The Proficiency certificate is required for any candidate proceeding to the Instructor qualification. If the yacht holds RYA recognition, or plans to apply for recognition, to offer the Safety course to guests for the duration of their stay onboard, at least one member of the crew must hold an RYA Personal Watercraft Instructor qualification.
Personal Watercraft Instructor course:
If the yacht requires Personal Watercraft Instructors onboard, the training will run over three full days and involve two Instructor Trainers, one to train and one to moderate on the final day. To meet the RYA guidelines, the minimum amount of instructor candidates is three, maximum six on a course.
