National Powerboat Certificate (Level 2)

Overview

Course Title: National Powerboat Certifcate (Level 2)

Cost: €325

This is an excellent course for those looking for a comprehensive and practical step by step guide to all that is powerboating. We have one of the largest and most diverse fleets of powerboats in the country. This includes everything from small tiller arm 15hp right up to RIBs with 175hp on the back. Successful students receive the “National Powerboat Certificate”.

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.

Course Syllabus

The course runs over two days from 9.30am-5.30pm and covers:

  • Learning how to Leave and Come Alongside a Dock.
  • Learning the art of picking up a Mooring.
  • Anchoring.
  • Turning in confined spaces / operating in busy marina areas.
  • Recovering a person fallen overboard.
  • Rules of the Road.
  • Launch and Recovery from a Road Trailer.
  • Safety and Planning.
  • Tying up to a dock.
  • All necessary knots to include Round Turn, Reef Knot and Bowline.

The above is just a taste of the many areas covered on the course. We aim to provide you with the perfect foundation and template in the sport of Powerboating. The course is conducted in a number of different boat types which may include tiller arm Yak boats with 15 horse power engines and RIBs (Rigid inflatable boats) of up to 175 horse power.
