Many Captains, Charter Agents and Managing agents don't realise that you can set up a Superyacht as an RYA training centre, which means you are able to offer an RYA certificated course to your guests, owners and crew.
Having your crew qualified as RYA PWC instructors is the first step to offering safe training, but being able to follow the RYA guidelines will allow you to issue certificates (that have interpretations in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish etc) that will satisfy most waterbourne authorities. The RYA Introduction to PWC safety course takes approximately 1 hour to deliver and allows your guests, owners & crew to hold an RYA certificate for the duration of their charter. With over 450 Superyachts (4/2015) now recognised as RYA training centres and more signing up daily, the proof of success is in the numbers!
The document required to become a PW licence training centre is similar to a mini-ISM; called a 'Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Safety manual which is a PWC, RYA and vessel specific document. The creation of this document is within the capabilties of the senior staff onboard, but many Yachts choose to outsource this process in order to save time, or simply to ensure they have everything in place before their RYA inspection.
Our consultants are all trained RYA Superyacht inspectors, so are fully aware of and up to date with RYA requirements and guidelines; this allows the Yacht to have a constant source of support and direction as and when questions arise through the process.
Once you have received notification from RYA training that your recognition has been granted, you can then order your RYA Personal Watercraft Safety Certificates. You can set up an RYA Credit Account so that you can order your certificates via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively you can make orders over the telephone (+44 2380 604132) and pay by credit card each time. You will need to quote your RYA training centre account number in order to do this.
RYA PWC Safety Certificates are sold in packs of x 10 and cost £57-50 per pack (2017)
