Pre Course Requirements

There are no pre-course requirements for this course as it is designed for beginners wishing to operate a Jet Ski. This is a requirement for many Superyacht Crew Positions and indeed if you own your own personal watercraft.

Our advice is to pick up the RYA Powerboat Handbook and have a stress free read through so you are familiar with some of the vocabulary used on yachts.  (Included in course price)
