Superyachts often have a range of ‘toys’ for clients to use. These often include PWC, and it is the duty of the staff to ensure that clients are using these safely. The RYA developed the PWC Safety course as a structured way to provide training to the clients. If you wish to teach this then you will need the RYA PWC Instructor certificate.
