RYA PPR Professional Practice Responsibilities – Online Course

A compulsory online course for new and revalidating RYA Commercial Endorsement holders. You can take this course anytime prior to your Commercial Endorsement application or renewal. Your PPR certificate will be valid either for your first Commercial Endorsement application or your next renewal.

If you work commercially on the water, then this is one of the courses required in order for you to obtain your RYA/MCA Certificate of Competence. This is an e-learning course, but an RYA instructor is on hand to provide as much support as you require, predominately via email, but we also offer Skype chats at pre-arranged times.

Course content:

The course is divided into various training modules:

  • Vessel – the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures. 
  • People – the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels. 
  • Commercial environment – how you fit into the professional maritime world. 
  • Purpose – making sure your vessel is suitable and legal for the work you are carrying out, your obligations in protecting the environment, appropriate planning and situational awareness. 

Once you have completed all four modules, there is a ‘mock’ exam you can take, or you can head straight for the final online assessments. 

Minimum duration:

Approximately 3-8 hours, but this depends on you and your learning style. You DO NOT have to sit the course all in one go, you can leave and come back to the learning modules over a period of days or weeks. However please be aware that the exam section has to be completed in one go, this assessment is graded, split into 2 sections and totals a maximum of 2.5 hours. 

The course access will expire after a period of 6 months from sign-up.
