Course Aims:

The Professional Practices and Responsibilities course is for skippers and crew using RYA qualifications to allow them to work commercially.  It is required for commercial endorsement.  Written mainly from the point of view of UK legislation and concentrates on the international maritime environment as a UK certificate holder.  However, it also explains the need to look beyond UK rules and regulations and take into consideration the requirements of the flag and port state.

Course Content:

Teaching scenarios throughout the course are based on a variety of boats, both sail and power.  It may be that you have experience on none of the boats used, but that will not affect your ability to do the course as no specialist knowledge of any type of vessel is required – the same rules and regulations apply regardless of your type of boat or operation.

If you have any questions about the PPR course or about commercial endorsement please Contact Us.
