RYA Powerboat Level 2 offers a general introduction to power boating and teaches boat handling and safety skills. The 2 day practical RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is generally considered being the licence for powerboat drivers.
The qualification is widely recognised throughout the world.
Achieving confidence in close quarters boat handling in harbours is an important element of this course. In addition, we will teach you driving at planing speed and doing high-speed manoeuvres on open water. You will also practice man overboard recovery, and cover the collision regulations as they apply to powerboats.
This course is available as 2 consecutive days.
Amongst other you will learn
How to prepare yourself for this course
In order to get the most out of your course, we offer you the possibility to do our online pre-course knowledge quiz. The quiz helps you to test your knowledge and to assess whether you need more preparation in some areas.
Ability after the course
At the end of the course you should achieve a level of seamanship and boat handling up to the standard required to skipper a small powerboat safely by day in familiar tidal and non-tidal waters under normal conditions.
We recommend attending the RYA Essential Navigation shorebased theory course before following the Powerboat Level 2 practical course.
After successfully completing this course, we recommend to first extend your knowledge with our RYA shorebased navigation courses, in particular the RYA Day Skipper theory course, ideally combined with courses for obtaining your SRC, Sea Survival or First Aid certificate.
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate of Competence can be commercially endorsed for anyone with ambition to find work as a professional crew member.
After building up experience during daytime passage, it will be time to learn making longer passages both during day-time and night-time, by joining our RYA Powerboat Intermediate or Advanced course.
The instructor is very experienced and the powerboat is just great. This was worth every minute and every euro spent.
I strongly recommend this training centre to anyone considering doing a powerboat course.
