RYA Personal Watercraft Proficiency
This course is an introduction to personal watercraft techniques for launching and recovering a boat from a road trailer, everyday boat handling and the use of safety equipment.
This is a one day course designed for beginners.

International Certificate of Competence (ICC) Motor over 10m
The ICC Motor over 10m is a great license to drive boats in European Waters and the preferred license for many yacht charter companies and insurance companies. The ICC differs from the RYA course mostly due to its focus on driving the boat and basic theory which does not include the heavy tidal modules found in the RYA Day Skipper, which is critical for UK waters. With the Meditteranean having essentially no tide, many opt for the ICC license.
