RYA Advanced Powerboat Prep & CoC Exam


If you are interested in an RYA Advanced Powerboat ticket for commercial employment, you will need to pass the RYA Advanced Powerboat Exam. The RYA will then issue you with an Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence which can be commercially endorsed. This is different to the Advanced Powerboat Course Completion certificate, which is a photocard certificate issued after attending the two-day Advanced Powerboat course.

This is 1x day of consolidation and exam preparation, immediately followed by the Certificate of Competence exam which will run late into hours of darkness, so you will be in for a long day and your finish time will depend on weather/time of year. Once successfully passed, the CoC can be commercially endorsed.

In order to be eligible for the exam, you MUST have the following before you attend:

  • Navigation to RYA Yachtmaster Coastal/Offshore Theory level
  • VHF SRC Marine Radio licence
  • Valid and in-date First Aid certificate
  • 2 days acting as skipper
  • 12 night hours
  • 800 miles and 30 days at sea (if you hold the photocard Advanced Powerboat Course Completion certificate, this is reduced to 400 miles and 20 days at sea)

The RYA charge a fee for the exam, this is not included in our course price.

If you are looking for the Course Completion part of the Advanced Powerboat, this can be purchased separately, or alternatively both the Course Completion and Prep/Exam can be purchased together at a reduced rate by contacting the office.
