Portsmouth, one on one training

Is there such a thing?

If, for example, you wanted to be qualified up to the equivalent of RYA 1 & 2 but didn't want to go to a training centre, preferring instead to have a more flexible/personal timetable - are there folk out there who can give you all the knowledge on a one to one basis?

Thanks....

Yes, but there is no check on quality of teaching were as RYA trg centres are at least inspected, staff trained etc. However all the training centres will do own boat training. Might cost a little more but one to one training is available.

The other advantage if you did the RYA level 2 is your insurance company will like certificates even if it only a quite basic level and if you are thinking of cross channel stuff later then you would be qualified for an ICC ticket.

All of the good training centres advertise on here under the Trade Directory (links are top right).

Thanks Pete, I'll check that out. I had wrongly assumed that training at a centre would be crowd of people gathered in a miserable old classroom all desperately waiting to get on a boat!

RYA training centres vary where you go. I did my Day Skipper with Longscar Power Boating in the North East. It was basically done in the extension of the lasses house but she had all the training facilities there and it was a good course. She even worked it around my offshore rota and got the 3 other lads on the course to fit in with it too. All in all very good.

I had used another RYA centre and hadn't been that impressed, the lad showed no enthusiasm and it too was ran from his house which had seen better days.

I've dropped a note to Boatability.

I can't say I'm too concerned about having something in my hand that says 'certificate', but I am concerned that I receive proper training - one leads to the other I suspect.

I would suggest dropping Jimbo on here a pm. He can arrange own boat tuition, or one on one instructor with one of my boats if required. He can arrange anything from a custom one day session to an advanced course
