Who should do this course?

This is an ideal beginner course, covering all you need to know to safely operate a powerboat. This course can include all the material from the introductory course so you don’t need to have completed it in advance, however, even limited previous powerboating experience is a help. Participants must be aged 16 years or older.  The National Powerboat Certificate allows you to apply for the ‘International Certificate of Competency’ (ICC). The aim of the ICC is to provide boat owners and people wishing to charter boats abroad with an internationally recognised document certifying their competence to skipper a boat for recreational use.
