Who is it for​

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course is a two-day entry level course, recognised by the UK MCA as a certificate of competency for the operation of small powerboats and also recognised by most European administrations for the operation of small craft under 10m.

The course teaches boat handling and seamanship in powerboats. This course is ideal for those seeking a qualification to operate yacht tenders as well as those wanting to learn to use a powerboat for leisure purposes.

Course Location​

This predominantly practical training takes place for the most part on the water, with only minimal sessions ashore.  The course is made up of continuous learning and assessment across the two days and does not require candidates to undertake a final exam.


OceanWave Monaco’s RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is run out of Monaco Port .
