Powerboat Training UK is a professional RYA Training Centre with a strong focus on commercial marine clients
Powerboat Training UK is a RYA Training Centre running the full range of RYA Powerboat Training Courses, Motorboat Training Courses, Shorebased and PWC Training Courses.
Established for almost 15 years we have a strong focus on the commercial marine sector and train clients in the UK, continental europe, the Middle East, the US and the Caribbean.
Our clients are involved in a range of sectors including: Construction and dredging; government agencies, Police Marine and Dive Units, Fire & Rescue Services, waterborne ambulance operations, towage companies, windfarm /renewables boat operators. We also train military and coastguard units.
When asked to work alongside a commercial client our first job is to understand the specific requirements that each client has so that we can advise the most suitable course for the client’s personnel. Each client’s need is very different and the qualifications the MCA (or equivalent) will require will be product of a variety of factors such as the size of the craft being helmed, what category the craft is ‘coded’ to, how far from a ‘safe haven’ it will be working and the nature of its activities.
When working with law enforcement and military operators our training will often extend beyond the core boat handling qualifications and may potentially include such areas as helicopter operations,boarding operations, search and rescue, rough water handling and fast craft operation.
