PB Intermediate Commercial

Hi all.

My brother has an intermediate PB cert but has no PB2....is it true that he has to do the lower PB2 course to get a commercial endorsement?

Cheers

Will

Yes, in order to have a level 2 certificate endorsed he will have to actually hold the level 2 certificate.

He could however gain a level 2 by direct assessment rather than taking the 2 day course. He should speak to the school he did the intermediate with. It may well be they will feel they saw enough boat handling to award him a level 2.

Why did the school let him do Intermediate ? did they assess his ability before the course ?
They are very differnent courses and Level 2 is a very basic level of everything.
The Intermediate is to develop boat handling and knowledge of navigation using a variety of methods ending in planning a coastal trip by day.
Typical would be Cowes Newtown Lymington Beulieau and return,

You are spot on Biffer, he has been on and around boats all his life and he is also a marine engineer so they assessed him and decided he could go straight to intermediate, but now he can't get a commercial endorsement so it seems a PB2 would have been more useful.

Ok this makes sense now the school though ,after assessing him via direct entry assessment should have awarded him his PB2 and then stuck him on the Intermediate course. It should be easy enough for him to get it if he contacts the school
