It depends what he intends using the ticket for.

The STCW 95 basic courses are not required for the advanced powerboat course or the commercially endorsed advanced. He will simply need VHF radio, First Aid (RYA), sea survival and a medical (an ML5 is sufficient). If he is operating in fair weather and between the hours of sunrise and sunset with no more than 12 passengers and no further than 3 miles from a safe haven on a vessel less than 10m then the powerboat level two commercially endorsed is sufficient. The STCW -95 endorsement is available on a Yacht-Master Offshore if the candidate holds the 4 basic modules - PSSR, Sea Survival, Fire Fighting, Elementary First Aid.. Some coutries and flag states specify that an STCW-95 endorsed ticket is required.. If this is the case then a commercially endorsed Yacht-Master Offshore is the minimum...

I hope this helps.. Feel free to PM if you need any further info...

[pedant mode] its 3 miles from a nominated departure point, not 3 miles from a safe haven. e.g. if you imagine a coastline with harbours every 5 miles you could travel very far on just an RYA PB2 cert if it were 3 miles from a safe haven. In fact you shouldn't be more than 3 miles from where you started your journey "to sea" (noting that "to sea" is where the categorised waters end, if you actually start within categorised waters). In contrast an Commercial APB ticket will let you go 20 miles from safe haven so you could go virtually anywhere within british waters. [/pedant mode]

Careful .... if the boat is red-flagged, we still have MCA involvement

I think you are confusing the ICC with the commercial certificates of competence. The limit of the Level 2 is 24m, not 10m.

Details are summarised at

http://www.stormforce.biz/informatio...-skippers.html

To be fair STCW'95 training has nothing to do with the RYA certificates of competence, while you can endorse the Yachmaster Offshore lots of seafarers working overseas with lower qualifications require STCW'95 basic safety training as well.
