About this experience
The RYA Level 2 Course is perfect wether you are new to boating or if you have been boating for some time but want to brush up on your skills. An added bonus to this is that many insurance companies now ask for a level of training to insure pleasure boats and if you are heading away on holidays and wish to do a bit of power boating in Europe you can fill out an application form to get an International Certificate of Competence (I.C.C.). If you are looking to use the certificate for work, you can move towards getting your Level 2 commercially endorsed.
