RYA Powerboat Advanced Professional Qualifications

RYA powerboat courses are primarily for those using small powered craft such as RIBs, dories and sportsboats that don't generally undertake long or offshore passages.

The types of commercial craft requiring this level of certification are typically: charter fishing boats, small passenger launches, thrill ride operators, harbour patrol launches, construction site safety boats etc. If you will be using larger boats with accommodation and the capacity to cruise or work further offshore you are likely to need a certificate within the motor cruising programme such as Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster Offshore. There are two types of Advanced certificate:

a)  A course completion certificate awarded by a training centre on successful completion of a two-day training course

b) A certificate of competence awarded by the RYA/MCA on successful completion of an exam

If you need a Powerboat Advanced certificate in order to work on board a commercial craft subject to the MCA's codes of practice, you will need to get it commercially endorsed. You can then work on commercial vessels up to 24m in length, operating in category 3, 4, 5 and 6 waters - that is up to 20 miles from a safe haven. Please note: it is only possible to commercially endorse an RYA/MCA Powerboat Advanced Certificate of Competence (option b above). The only exception to this is if you were awarded a course completion certificate (option a above) prior to 1 January 2005, in which case you may obtain a commercial endorsement without having to pass the exam.

Aims to teach boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation up to the standards required to drive a planing powerboat safely by day and night in tidal coastal waters, with which the candidate may be familiar, in more demanding conditions. Given the nature of these passages Advanced Powerboat courses should be delivered on powerboats of a minimum of 6 metres and an engine size sufficient to enable coastal passages at planing speed.

Candidates should be competent to the level of the Intermediate Powerboat Certificate with a knowledge of the navigation and chartwork to the level of Coastal Skipper & Yachtmaster Offshore Shorebased certificate.

It is strongly recommended that candidates hold a first aid certificate and a VHF operators certificate.

2 days including at least 1 night navigation exercise

Preparation for sea, boat handling, passage making and responsibility as skipper, pilotage, meteorology, rules of the road, use of engines, emergency situations, night cruising

Able to plan and execute coastal trips and return to a familiar port by night

The course predominantly takes place afloat however some elements, specifically navigation, are classroom based.

Advanced Powerboat (‘CoC’) Commercial Exam - General

Advanced Powerboat Commercial Exam

The RYA/MCA Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence (‘CoC’) Examination is undertaken by those wishing to operate craft commercially up to 20 miles from a safe haven by day or night.

Exam Duration

This can only be a rough guide and a whole variety of factors affect how long each examination lasts. As a guide though – 1 candidate 4 – 5 hours, 2 candidates 5 – 6 hours, 3 Candidates 6 – 7 hours

Minimum seatime required

2 years relevant experience including night pilotage. (As a guide 30 days, 2 days as skipper, 800 miles, 12 night hours). If you hold an RYA Advanced Powerboat Course Completion Certificate the seatime is reduced to: 20 days, 2 days as skipper, 400 miles, 12 night hours. Your theory knowledge should be at the level of RYA Yachtmaster Theory.

Examiner – student ratio

3 students to 1 RYA/MCA Examiner and boat.

Minimum Age

What training and preparation should I undertake before taking the examination?

This will vary from person to person but it is easy to underestimate the level that you need to be at for the Advanced Examination. The common mistake to make is to assume that because you have taken the Advanced Powerboat Course that you are at the right level. The Advanced Powerboat Course is a really good work-up to the exam and certainly most people should undertake it. However by way of example the Advanced Course may introduce you to night navigation whereas the exam requires you to demonstrate a high degree of competence at night way above the level you would have been at if the Advanced Course was your first trip out at night. In short the advanced course introduces techniques and methods whilst the exam tests that using those techniques and methods is second nature to you. This will only be the case if you have invested plenty of time practicing the methods and actually put them into practice on real passages.

Make sure that ahead of the exam that you ensure that your theory is fully up to scratch (you need to be at the level of RYA Yachtmaster Theory) and put time in ensuring your close quarter boat handling is very good in any conditions. You should be able to put a RIB into almost any marina berth the examiner chooses either bow or stern first in any conditions. Practicing the various pilotage techniques you will use day and night to ensure you are totally happy with their use is of course essential.

Overall the key thing is to ensure that you have enough experience and time afloat as you need to evidence a high degree of competence and confidence to the examiner. The examiner has to judge whether to recommend that you are capable of being responsible for 12 passengers so he/she has to be sure that you have the necessary skills.

Why choose Powerboat Training UK for your RYA Advanced Powerboat Examination?

Our boats ~ with 7.8m fully coded Ribcrafts based in both Poole and Lymington we are able to provide first class boats for you to use on the examination. Each RIB is fully equipped with all relevant safety equipment and are fitted with Icom and Garmin electronics.

Our location and teaching facilities ~ Poole Harbour is a truly amazing location – so much so that the RNLI and the Royal Marines base their training operations here.

Likewise our base in Lymington at Aquasafe Powerboat School is at Lymington Yacht Haven which like Cobbs Quay is a large marina with a huge range of craft. Our classrooms are well resourced, clean and professional.

Both locations provide a first class venue for an examination and except in extreme conditions exams are rarely weather affected.

RYA_Powerboat_Handbook

The Advanced Powerboat course is aimed at the more experienced powerboat handler and assumes you can handle a powerboat very well as it is about developing your skills rather than starting them! It also assumes you understand navigation to the level of Yachtmaster/Coastal Skipper Theory (although you don’t actually need the qualification). We would always suggest that we have a chat with you about your experience before you book the course to ensure that this is the best course for you

Run over 2 days and a evening (night exercise), the Advanced Powerboat course is designed to teach boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation up to the standards required to drive a planing powerboat safely by day and night in coastal waters. 

Ability at the end of the course: 

  • To be able to plan and execute coastal trips and return to a familiar port by night.
  • Preparation for Sea
  • Boat Handling
  • Action to be taken in rough weather
  • Passage making and responsibility as Skipper
  • Rules of the Road
  • Use of Engines
  • Towing and being Towed

Aimed at experienced leisure boaters and those seeking to work commercially the Advanced Course can be followed by the Advanced Examination.

The pinnacle of the courses within the RYA powerboat scheme the Advanced Powerboat course suits:

  • Experienced leisure users who tend to boat throughout the year keen to develop their understanding of areas such as rough water handling, search patterns and helicopter rescue. The opportunity to develop the capability to navigate at night is always a significant area of interest to attendees.
  • Those keen to work commercially will almost certainly want to attend the Advanced Powerboat course before attending their Advanced Powerboat Examination as the course is a way to ensure that they are ‘doing it right’ and in a manner that is likely to prove acceptable to the examiner.
  • Existing Powerboat Instructors keen to develop onto become an Advanced Powerboat Instructor will need to undertake the Advanced Course as one of the steps towards becoming an APBI.
  • Existing commercial users operating at a level below the Advanced level will often use the advanced courses as a form of ‘Continuing Professional Development’ (CPD). to ensure those skippers continue to develop their skills
  • The course assumes you can handle a powerboat very well as it is about developing your skills rather than starting them! 
  • Candidates should be competent to more than the standard of the Intermediate Powerboat Certificate.
  • It also assumes you understand navigation to the level of at LEAST Day Skipper Theory ideally you will be at the Coastal Skipper/Yachtmaster offshore theory standard
  • It is strongly recommended that candidates hold a first aid certificate and a VHF operators certificate.
  • Courses usually start at 0900 and will finish around 3-4 hours after it gets dark on day 1 to accommodate the night exercise.

Great school, fantastic skippers, and easy to reach from London! Really can recommend the weekend courses if you are busy working.

- Leonard Wossnig

Friendly but highly professional sail training, both shore-based and practical. Fred and the team are now my "go-to" RYA trainers of choice. After all, if you learn to sail in the Medway and Thames Estuary, in British weather, in February and March, you can probably sail anywhere!

- Gareth Draper

Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value 100% recommended, good people dedicated, learnt a lot from Paul my instructor and Fred the boss.

- Richard Collis

Absolutely amazing experience. I took part in 2 days Milebuilder. Well prepared. It’s a pleasure to learn from such experienced people like Steve who was a skipper. Highly recommend and hope to return soon.

- Piotr Kurzawa

I've just come back from my first weekend for competent Crew and wow what a great experience. I definitely think I’ve got the sailing bug now. I was nervous before I started the course due to never sailing before. Also, I thought I'd be meeting people completely different from myself, and I wouldn't gel I am covered in tattoos and talk like someone from the cast of Harry brown 😂but everyone was sooo cool and the skipper big Steve was a proper lad and a great teacher! Spoke to us through the whole process, and he also allowed us to make mistakes and build our confidence to get it right. 👌

RYA Advanced Powerboat Exam

Guide to the RYA MCA Advanced Powerboat Exam

The Advanced powerboat exam is a day and night time test of boat handling and navigation. After successfully completing this exam you will be able to complete the rest of the steps and go pro.

Exams are arranged as required so please get in touch with us. Everything is explained in detail below.

Maximum 3 people per exam.

Experience required to take the advanced powerboat exam

There are some pre-requisites that you need to fulfil before you can take the exam.

Firstly, you will need theory knowledge to the level of the Coastal Skipper / RYA Yachtmaster shorebased course. It’s not mandatory to take the RYA course however. If you already have the knowledge from experience that’s fine.

You need some recorded time served on boats though. As a guide, 30 days experience during which you have logged 800 sea miles. 2 days should have been when you were skipper and the time should include at least 12 night hours.

Having said that, if you have completed an RYA advanced powerboat course the requirement is reduced to 20 days at sea and 400 logged sea miles.

You also need to be at least 17 years of age.

The boat we use for examinations

Advanced Powerboat Exam

This is the commercial RIB we use for the exams. It’s the same boat as we use for the advanced powerboat course . She’s fully coded to commercial standards to go out day or night. She carries one 12 man life raft, flares, CAT C first aid kit and a whole host of other equipment.

Her engine is a Honda 250hp and she is capable of nearly 40 knots. She has a beam of 2.4 metres which makes her incredibly stable. As she is 7.6 metres long the helm and forward jockey seats are fairly dry too.

She is a high quality vessel and we are proud to use her for your important qualifications.

How long does the advanced powerboat exam last?

Like powerboat courses, there are a maximum of three students allowed on an exam. The amount of students will vary the exam time.

  • 1 student = 4-5 hours
  • 2 students = 5-6 hours
  • 3 students = 6-7 hours

First refuelling for Russia’s Akademik Lomonosov floating NPP

!{Model.Description}

advanced powerboat exam

The FNPP includes two KLT-40S reactor units. In such reactors, nuclear fuel is not replaced in the same way as in standard NPPs – partial replacement of fuel once every 12-18 months. Instead, once every few years the entire reactor core is replaced with and a full load of fresh fuel.

The KLT-40S reactor cores have a number of advantages compared with standard NPPs. For the first time, a cassette core was used, which made it possible to increase the fuel cycle to 3-3.5 years before refuelling, and also reduce by one and a half times the fuel component in the cost of the electricity produced. The operating experience of the FNPP provided the basis for the design of the new series of nuclear icebreaker reactors (series 22220). Currently, three such icebreakers have been launched.

The Akademik Lomonosov was connected to the power grid in December 2019, and put into commercial operation in May 2020.

Electricity generation from the FNPP at the end of 2023 amounted to 194 GWh. The population of Pevek is just over 4,000 people. However, the plant can potentially provide electricity to a city with a population of up to 100,000. The FNPP solved two problems. Firstly, it replaced the retiring capacities of the Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant, which has been operating since 1974, as well as the Chaunskaya Thermal Power Plant, which is more than 70 years old. It also supplies power to the main mining enterprises located in western Chukotka. In September, a 490 km 110 kilovolt power transmission line was put into operation connecting Pevek and Bilibino.
