Day trips & support boat - Adv PB commercially endorsed required
Rescue boat cover - PB2 and safety boat

The route I took was PB2, safety boat, first aid, SRC VHF, Powerboat Instructor, Advanced PB, ML5, sea survival, Advanced PB exam, Commercial endorsement

With those qualifications I work as a charter skipper (ribs and hard boats) and teach RYA PB2 and Safety Boat.

If you have any specific questions PM me.

Chris

That is pretty much the route that I was hoping to follow. There is a place in wales called seawake, they do the first aid, radio and sea survival all together, separate days of course lol. Thank you very much that is really helpful, chris.

Tried him. He couldnt help. Must be a busy chap though. Shame because he dis look good. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Its a long time since anyone said I looked good....and she had had several too many even then.
A lot of people chasing jobs out there, & although I do know of the odd one still sailing WT transfer boats on advanced powerboat, its no longer the norm.
Yep we are very busy with the renewables clients, I keep promising m'self I will retire from it but it never seems to happen, we will do some training when it warms up a bit, cos we enjoy it, but a lot of that time is promised to enforcement guys.
