New for 2015 is the RYA Powerboat Tender Operators Course. Aimed at superyacht deck crew who will be carrying out guest transfers between the yacht/anchorage and the shore. The course includes some night driving and costs £325 per person (multiple booking discounts are available).
The focus of this course is on ensuring those that undertake the course have the skills necessary to helm and manage a craft carrying passengers/guests both by day and night. The course was constructed by the RYA in conjunction with the Professional Yachtsman’s Association to address the very real need for a qualification focussing on the superyacht sector. Whilst the course may seem at first glance focussed on this sector it is relevant to any helmsman undertaking the transfer of passengers/guests.
The vast majority of the time on this course is spent on the water and out of the classroom. As with the Advanced Powerboat Course the minimum age for the Tender Operators Course is 17 and the entry requirement is the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course. We also strongly recommend that attendees already possess the RYA VHF Short Range Radio Certificate and the RYA or STCW95 one day First Aid qualification.
