Our one-day course teaches you how to use your personal watercraft (PW) safely, responsibly and with confidence, ensuring you get the best out of your craft.
All new PWs in the UK come with a voucher towards the cost of this course and, once passed, you are issued with a certificate of proficiency. Increasingly this certificate is required for launching in UK harbours and other locations around the world. It is also needed if you want to apply for an International Certificate of Competence to use your PW abroad.
