MORE INFO & BOOK

 

The practical training and assessment day at Gold Coast Marine Training is a fun day on the water and includes:

  • A theory revision session with one of our trainers;
  • A multiple choice written test;
  • Assistance to those with learning difficulties where possible;
  • A quiet air-conditioned professional classroom overlooking the water to sit the written test;
  • A thorough pre-departure vessel induction on our boats and jetski's;
  • A practical demonstration from one of our experienced trainers on the boat and jetski showing you what is required;
  • A thorough training session where you can practice driving the boat and jet-ski before the assessment starts; and
  • A practical assessment on our boats and jet-ski's as per the Boatsafe practical demonstration checklist.

 

The practical training and assessment day goes for approximately 5 - 7 hours and is a small group session.

Depending on previous experience, some licence candidates may require more time than others on the water training to become a competent skipper. If you haven’t driven a boat and/or jet-ski before and are not feeling very confident, it is possible to do some additional training with us or a friend before the practical training and assessment day. Get in contact with us at info@goldcoastmarinetraining.com.au to find out more information on this.

 

  • We comply with the Boatsafe Scheme and Business Rules. Our course outlines have been verified by Maritime Safety Queensland in house after the 1 October 2020.

 

Please note: You MUST have already completed the theory component of the course with Gold Coast Marine Training before you can come in for the practical training and assessment day with us. If you turn up with a certificate of completion from another company you will be turned away unfortunately and no refund will be offered for the practical costs as a valuable spot would have been taken.

 

Download the Boat Safe Workbook

Please make sure you download this boat safe workbook if you are coming in and completing your jet ski (PWC) licence course only.  As a boat (RMDL) licence holder it is assumed you remember all the rules from when you completed your boat licence course therefore and you will be tested on the collsion regulations, buoyage system and safety requirements.  Make sure you know them before coming in! The collision regulations and buoyage system found in section 4 are very important, so read those sections before anything else.
