Certifying your Guests & Owners to use Jetski's

Ensure your guests jetski safely and legally

The Royal Yachting Association introduction to PWC (jetski) Safety course was developed and designed specifically for Superyachts and Megayachts in 2007 and allows the vessel to become an RYA recognised training centre. Which gives a Yacht the ability to train and issue vessel specific jetski certificates/licences to owners, guests and crew that last for the duration of their charter / stay onboard*.

 

* Maximum six months for owners and regular guests, 12 months for crew

 

There are many reasons for ensuring your guests hold licences; to remove the concern over local authorities and fulfill local byelaws, but also simply from a safety point of view - after jetski super yacht guest fatalities directly linked to Superyachts and PWCs/jetskis this matter is even more paramount. 

 

If you would like your Yacht to have the ability to offer certificates/licences to your guests/owners then read how to do this HERE

 

In order to offer the RYA introduction to PWC safety course on your Yacht, you must become a RYA PWC training centre and have a minimum of one RYA PWC instructor onboard.
