He'll been fine as long as it includes radioing ahead for a clear berth, going along side then treating a cut finger when he gets there.

The lads 18 years old, obviously enjoying his boating, so a little encouragment
would be more helpfull than trying to take the piss.
All it took was a link to some usefull information. as supplied by Sea skills.

Well no, as it happens. His test was to be the following morning, so he had about 5 hours to acquaint himself with the syllabus/test.

As there wasn't any gratuitous abuse or belittlement involved, I wouldn't sweat his age too much either, it certainly wouldn't put the army off shipping him to Afghanistan and I'm sure "the lad" wouldn't expect to be patronised for it either.

What I'm getting at is he should have researched the course first, he said himself he has little or no navigation experience yet he'll be teaching people.

Well no he wont be teaching people, because it is an asscesment,intended to direct him on the skills he needs to acquire to pass. which has to be better
than going for the course and being totally out of your limits resulting in a fail. Clearly he has alot of learning to do and would be better going down the
rya sylabus pb2, vhf, intermediate, advanced,and then pbi.

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 ?
