The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) offers the one-day RYA Personal Watercraft Certificate at various RYA Training Centres, as well as the provision for Yachts to become RYA Training Centres offering the RYA PW Safety Certificates onboard to guests, owners and crew after appropriate training.

If your crew or guests need to gain the RYA PWC Proficiency Certificate also known as the 'jetski licence' we can offer onboard training at your location anywhere in Europe or at our UK centre. This certificate (licence) training takes 1 day. This certificate is also the pre-requisite to any crew member going on to complete the RYA PWC (jetski) instructor course. 


Option 1: Instructor training onboard your Superyacht:

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) offers both the one-day RYA Personal Watercraft Certificate at various RYA Training Centres, as well as the provision for Yachts to become RYA Training Centres, offering the PW Safety Certificates onboard to guests, owners and crew after appropriate training.

The first steps are to ensure you have a minimum of one RYA PWC instructor onboard (see below) and the relevant training centre operating procedures in place (see certifying guests). 

If you would like to get a group (maximum six instructor students per course) trained up to become RYA PWC instructors then you are able to have an RYA PWC Trainer come to you and run the course onboard your Yacht. This Trainer can also run an RYA PWC proficiency course prior to the instructor course if required to meet the instructor course pre-requisites. On the last day of the three day instructor course, a second trainer must attend to 'moderate' the course. 


Option 2: Training at a land-based centre:

If you have a smaller group/single person it may be more cost effective/easier to send them to a land-based training centre that offers the RYA PWC instructor course. We run RYA Jetski (PWC) proficiency courses and instructor courses a minimum of once a month year round at our UK centre in Poole Harbour, Dorset. 


The RYA Jetski (Personal Watercraft) Instructor course:
