Commercial PPR course/test

Hi guys, just been on the RYA website trying to find out the latest.
Im planning to commercially endorse my certs in March? Will I then have to do this test within a certain timescale?
Thanks Ruari

The exam will go live on 2nd April 2012 but will NOT become compulsory until 1st June 2012 so you can sit the exam in this time or just renew as per the present process. It appears you can commercially endorse your qualifications using the present system in March and there is no requirement to complete the PPR

Thanks C2, here is a real stupid question, im guessing there is no practical exam for a commercial endorsement its just the case of sending away your certs and form.
Question- I have pb lvl 2 and will be sitting my advanced in march. I have my ML5 and sea survival & vhf.
Should I commercially endorse my level 2 now then when ive done advanced commercially endorse that?

Ok I am not a training school but have instructors ticket. You can commercially endorse a PB 2 basically with paper work, The Advanced powerboat certificate requires an examination to commercial endorse( think thats the correct wording).
The advanced powerboat ticket takes night navigation on board in the sylabus. To have that commercially endorsed you must be examined over boat handling, night navigation and also a written exam during the examination period. Training school experts will be along shortly to give you the full run down

Yeah im guessing the advanced certificate of competence is the exam which comes at the end of the course is the only practical exam? Then its just send the form & certs away?
What you reckon should i commercially endorse my level 2, my only worry is that I have to send away my ML5 will i get this back to commercially endorse my advanced a month or so later?

Thanks for the Help Ian
Here is my new boat www.castlecharter.co.uk

Yeah I know... I take over a charter boat in March, It does 2 mile wildlife trips and close to shore work, just thought if there was any delay with advanced or RYA returning my documents i could still operate the short trips?

I think i better just organise my Advanced

Hi

the Advance Powerboat is in two parts to make it commercial.

first you need to past the course!
next is an independent examiner will put you through another test then issue you another bit of paper.

After you done this you need to send to RYA with your paper work and endorse.

If you looking for good sea school, I would high recommend Greg @ SeaForce who posts on here.

He can arrange for both parts to happen, back to back if needed.

regards

Scott

Thanks SPR, youve confirmed my suspicions.
A friend who did the MCA route was confusing me as he though there was 2 exams.
Cheers guys.

Ruari, I may be remembering this wrong, but if the boat is coded for longer trips commercial pb2 will not be enough even if you are only going less than 3miles to sea.
