COVID - 19 UPDATE 

Due to the evolving impact of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on members of our community and organisations, Surf Life Saving Tasmania regret to inform you that all Public Training Courses are suspended until further notice. The safety of all Candidates, Trainers and our members is of the upmost importance. We assure that all decisions are considered in line with advice from the Department of Health and Human Services and the World Health Organisation.

The Recreational Boat Licence 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 License Courses are run concurrently with PWC Licence 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 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.
