RYA Commercial Endorsement

Would someone remind me what is needed these days to get a commercial endorsement from RYA?

I'm sure I have a commercial ticket somewhere, but heaven knows where.

Also a couple of other lads I work with need to get it done.

We all have annual medicals, 1st aid at work, PB level 2 and sea survival already...

Sorry if I'm being lazy here.

Also would be handy for me if we could do it in Poole or Southampton..

RIBase
To clarify, is it APB you wish to endorse, or the PBL2?

Application form from RYA (google should find it).

You'll need a VHF certificate (SRC operators certificate - I think is its proper name)
A Professional Practices and Responsibilities Certificate - most RYA schools should be able to assist.

You'll need the right medical - and your first aid course needs to be from the RYA's approved list.

A commercially endorsed PB2 doesn't let you go very far (and even if you aren't actually going far I seem to recall if the boat is coded to go further you need the higher quals).

As poly says PB2 commercially endorsed only gets you category 6 waters, To sea within 3 miles from a nominated departure point(s) named in the certificate and never more than 3 miles from land, in favourable weather and daylight

However.....MGN28 defines "going to sea" as departing seaward of category C or D waters. For example in the case of the Clyde this would mean anything north of a line between roughly Skipness and Fairly would be covered by the inland water code and it's adoption is voluntary.

If you have commercially endorsed a certificate it will be recorded - contact the certification department at the RYA. They will need to know your name and either your date of birth, RYA membership number, or the address where you lived at the time.

I did the PPR recently. Prior to doing it I thought it was a load of cobblers but it opened my eyes to the responsibilities of a skipper towards his passengers, I bet there's a lot of skippers out there taking people out when they shouldn't be or putting them at risk.
Professional or not, I recommend the RYA book if you take your duty of care towards your pax seriously.

Did mine ....felt some of the questions were not properly thought out. I knew all the answers I had to give to get the marks but also knew some these answers weren't strictly correct and for most skippers there was some scenarios that were really never going to be relevant eg working time directives, foreign port sanitation regulations etc.
