The Recreational Boat and PWC courses are broken into a theory and practical session (as per the Tasmanian Safe Boating Handbook), an assessment of your competence will be made through the observation of a number of maneuvers performed on the craft and written multi choice exam. For those who have never been on a PWC the course will cover what you need to know to safely enjoy your craft. 

Boat Training Courses are run concurrently with PWC Training Courses. Legislation states that to hold a PWC Licence you are required to hold a current Recreational Boat Licence. You can obtain both licences on the one course, simply select the appropriate registration via the booking page.

For individuals aged between 12 and 16 a provisional licence can be obtained. A parent or guardian will need to be present and on the water with participants for the practical session and once you are licenced, as required by legislation.
