Ireland commercial rib license?

Just wondering what would be the procedure to become a commercial RIB operator in Ireland.

What kind of licenses do I need and where do I go to get them?

Home | DTTAS Department of Transport, Tourism And Sport is probably a good starting point.

I think is the application form.

Thx. So that will do for "any ould boat", including the SIB they use to get people onto the Blasket islands?

I suppose they'll be wanting something more advanced than a RYA Powerboat level 2 as well

I believe the Blaskets SIB has an exemption as they use "The Force" in the event of any difficulties.

I haven't gone near any of this commercial stuff so can't offer any insight but I'm guessing lots of forms and fees.
