According to Rachel Andrews in February there were no plans to end the endorsement of PB2 - but then that was two months ago

I've been reading up on this new stuff and there isn't a "commercial exam" as such though. It's an Advanced Powerboat exam which is now the qualification that can be commercially endorsed (you can't commercially endorse a course completion certificate for Advanced Powerboat unless it's pre 2005 ).

More details here:

The revalidation requirements appear to be nonsensical...

This is entirely correct and has been the situation for quite some time. A commercial endorsement is gained through a separate process to the completion of a course or exam leading to a certificate of competence. Once you hold a commercial endorsement, you can apply that to any suitable course completion certificates or certificates of competence you might have.

They don't appear completely clear cut. I think your best bet is to either telephone certification at the RYA (023 8060 4158/certification+rya.org.uk) and ask them what you need to do (probably once you have the other pre-requisites in place), or send off a commercial endorsement application or renewal form complete with a cover note.

Springs to mind- left and right hand not knowing what is happening or planned,

I was trying to find the original RYA web pages which clearly stated that PB2 commercial was next to go and intermediate would replace it but appears web pages have changed again since we had CPD training and conference

My understanding was that the PB2 is about to undergo an overhaul so perhaps this will come in with that?

I know exactly - as another example - I was recently sent the latest edition of the Powerboat Logbook with an accompanying letter outlining changes to courses which included a paragraph

"Under the Boat handling section, Powerboat level 2, Intermediate and Advanced all now include "the importance of boat control in waves and adequate seating to minimise the possibility of back injury" to the level of "understands"

Confused - I am - this is NOT new - this has been in the sylabus, to this level, for all 3 courses since APRIL 2010 - also why has reference to CG66 been dropped?
