Pete is this for you? If it is, I would say with your experience, you could go straight to Advanced with little trouble.

I appreciate your confidence ! At the moment it is for a 'paper exercise' as I have been asked about shared ownership of my boat for which the other party has asked I get something to show some degree of vague competence.

It may or may not happen but thought I may do something anyway if only to keep me occupied in the next few weeks. ( If you need a spare pair of (unqualified) hands anytime let me know).

Pete

I did my PB intructors course and then attended a PB 2 course at Tims. I have to say he runs a smooth course. He has a great manner with his students and I was able to learn a lot from him during my attendance to gain experience.

As a mainland alternative, Paul Glatzel at Powerboat Training UK (Cobbs Quay, Poole) has couses scheduled for 1/2 (possibly too late now), 5/6 and 9/10 June and regularly thereafter.

You are maybe better of going to Tim for the convenience otherwise i know Plymouth Powerboat School and Devon Powerboating, both placed in plymouth put on courses when there is demand. Depends if you fancy a trip to the west country too!

Have you considered doing the PB 2 assessment? If you have, and from reading others post you have, the experience you can do a straight assessment taking around half a day.

Both my wife and I did our PB2 course with Tim recently and I agree with Ian of C2Ribs. I learnt absolutely tons, it was great fun, and Tim gave top advice about how to further improve my "Rib" life. I would strongly recommend him.

As has been said if you are already competent you can simply do the assessment which is half a day (?) and costs less. If you contact a centre they should be able to arrange this as a one on one exercise. I'd give Stormforce in Southampton a call - they have a lot of instructors so can probably arrange one for you pretty quickly.
