RYA Advanced Powerboat Commercial Exam

RYA ADVANCED POWERBOAT COMMERCIAL EXAM NORTH WALES

Coming soon……. Subject to recognition…..

The MCA/RYA Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence examination is a practical and theoretical test of your skippering ability both by day and night. The exam will thoroughly test your practical boat handling skills, as well as your theory knowledge up to the level of Coastal Skipper Yachtmaster Offshore. It is highly recommended that you hold this certificate (although not essential) prior to your exam, as it is unlikely that your theory knowledge will be at the required level to pass the examination without it.
