RYA Courses?

Guys,

I'm at the level 2 Powerboat stage now but would like my commercial ticket.

What courses do I have to do to get this please?
Is it better to become a Day skipper or Coastal Skipper - differences & cost?
or just get my advanced ticket?

I will want to take 'paying passengers (divers)' out - not in my current RIB though.

Any websites to look at?

Pete

Yes - this one! A few of the instructors and trainers gave quite a lot of input on here recently. There's a thread here: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...ment#post34921 If I remember correctly, you should get your Advanced quickly along with the other commercial requirements (I think it's First Aid, VHF, Sea Survival and a medical) before the regs get tougher.

Day Skipper - I don't believe that it counts for anything commercially. Costal Skipper - much, much more demanding than the current Advanced Powerboat course. I've been advised to go straight to Yachtmaster rather than do Coastal Skipper.

Read the thread though - the guys who contributed are better qualified than me!

Hi

Our far do you want to go offshore?

You can have your level 2 commercial endorsed, for up to 3 miles.

If you wish to go further i would get your Advanced done.

PB 2 Endorsement

How do you go about getting the L2 'endorsed'? Do you just need to provide proof of L2 (certificate) and then the other stuff (medical, VHF, Sea Survival, first aid etc) to the MCA? Who actually endorses it?

And if after you get your L2 endorsed, and then you subsequently get your Advanced, does it automatically become endorsed, or do you need to apply again?

Ta!!

Dylan...

RYA Endorses your ticket.

You need to send the license off with your bits and bobs and 15

Belive you after do the same again if you then do your advanced.
