The Level 1 powerboat course aims to provide a practical introduction to powerboating in an RYA course. This course takes one day. To take part in this powerboat course you do not require any previous boating experience or powerboat training. The Powerboat Level 1 course suits those who are keen for a basic introduction to powerboating. Those thinking of chartering a powerboat can get a good idea about boating by attending, and partners of boaters can use the course to acquire the skills necessary to handle a craft in an emergency if their partner is incapacitated. Those with their own boat, or acquiring one, should take the Powerboat Level 2 course (which covers things in far more depth) – achieving Powerboat Level 1 is NOT a prerequisite before attending Powerboat Level 2 training so Power boat Level 1 can be by passed if required.
