The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course covers all of the basics for using a RIB, Speedboat, Powerboat, Fishing boat or tender by day, in fair weather and insight of land. The course is aimed at beginners or students with no formal training; as such there is no pre course reading or expected knowledge before the course. The Powerboat Level 2 also covers the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) which can be applied for upon completion of the course.
The aim of the course is to make you a capable skipper and to give you the confidence to taking friends and family out on your boat or crew on friend’s boats. By the end of the course you will have a good knowledge of:
• Close quarters boat handling
• Planning speed manoeuvres
• Man over board
• Safety equipment
• Navigation and rules of the road
The course is usually run over 2 consecutive days, though we have short day courses and weekend courses also available, courses start at 9.30am and finish at around 5.00pm. The vast majority of your time with us will be spent on the water aboard our 2016 Ballistic RIB covering subjects practically and any theoretical topics are covered ashore in our classroom on site.
Is JBT Marine Training for me?
JBT Marine has been running since the turn of the century and as such we believe we have accumulated a great knowledge base which we would like to share. Our courses are run by a handful of highly qualified instructors, many of which are full time staff.
We believe the best way to learn is in a relaxed environment where you can ask any questions or practice any manoeuvre until you are 100% happy with it. For you this means if come to us for a shore-based course we will have a maximum of 6 - 8 people per instructor, for a practical course we will adapt the tuition around you and your personal needs and we can even train you on a boat specific to your needs.
All of our training is carried out in one of our training rooms on site and practical courses use an up to date training RIB with Colour GPS and Depth Sounder, Hydraulic steering, electric start engine and secure seating for all onboard.
We also offer ladies only courses and practical group courses for up to 9 people between various craft giving you that all important experience in different boats.
All of our prices include VAT, RYA certificates and Handbooks, a warm training room, fuel and moorings at Trafalgar Wharf.
