Im at Plas Menai in North Wales doing their 3-week Fast-Track Powerboat Instructor course.

So far done RYA 1st Aid, Intermediate, Safety Boat, PBI Skills assement and have done the VHF today. In 2 weeks time, we will have done Day skipper theorey, sea survival, deisel engine maintenance, advanced powerboat and the instructor course and we (in combination with Plas Menai) are arranging to get the external RYA examiner in at the end of the course to do the assement that allows us to commercially endorse are advanced certificate's. We have already been given the advanced powerboat syllabus but dont know wat to expect when the external examiner comes in!

So the question is aimed at all the commercially endorsed advanced powerboaters or senior RYA examiners, what will I be asked to do/ excpeted to do in the assement ?
