Powerboating offers both the gentle pace of a leisurely cruise and the thrill of flying across the open water. Whatever your pace, our RYA courses will give you the confidence and skills to handle the boat safely and make the most of your time out on the water.

As well as courses for more recreational means, RYA certificates are used by industry professionals to prove competence or when professional qualifications are a role requirement. In many countries the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) is a professional requirement. For corporate clients, we can tailor courses and dates to individual needs.
