This course is aimed at those who would benefit from a basic introduction to Powerboating,
perhaps your young or in-experienced crew or for those who may wish to take up Powerboating
and have had no experience, yet!
This is perhaps the most popular qualification which provides the skills and background
knowledge needed to be a competent powerboat "driver".
It meets the minimum standard required to obtain an International Certificate of
Competence (ICC) required by many countries throughout Europe and the World if you
wish to use your boat, or charter one, in their waters.
This course will suit those with a good level of boat handling skills who would like
to develop these skills further with a view to expanding their cruising range by
navigating coastal waters on short, daylight passages. It provides practical instruction
on traditional and electronic navigation techniques required to create and execute
pilotage notes and passage plans.
Primarily for very experienced Powerboaters, this course is aimed at the professional
or serious amateur. It is run over two long days and incorporates a night passage
on the first day. It is expected that you will already possess and be able to demonstrate
very good boathandling and navigational skills and be able to take charge of a powerboat,
and crew, in both known and unknown waters in daylight, and at night, in all conditions.
Whilst there is instruction in some new and more advanced manoeuvres on this course
it is very much an "assessment with guidance".
