More details about the course

The Advanced powerboat course is aimed at experienced leisure powerboaters and professional users keen, or needing to, to develop their knowledge onto the next level.
It is a challenging course and gives students the chance to develop their capabilities and knowledge in a variety of areas. A key aspect of the course is the planning and execution of two passages – one by day and one by night. Equally, given that attendees are likely to be undertaking longer passages in less good conditions a key feature of the course is developing the capability of the skipper to manage the crew and boat taking decisions in challenging situations.
The quality of the Instructors makes a huge difference to the value you derive from the course. Our Advanced Instructors are hugely experienced and teach these courses throughout the year to a range of leisure, commercial and military users.

NB: If you want to work commercially you will need your Advanced Powerboat Exam.

Your instructor will cover the following topics with you during your time with him/her:
Preparation for sea
Boat handling (inc rough water)
Passage making
Pilotage
Meteorology
Rules of the road
Use of engines
Emergency situations
Undertaking searches
