This course is designed to introduce beginners to safe boating habits and assist them to obtain a Victorian Recreational Marine Licence with or without a PWC (jet ski) endorsement.
Approved by Transport Safety Victoria (TSV), the course includes trip preparation, weather, engine checks, safety equipment, emergency procedures, hypothermia, man overboard procedures, distress signals, rescue, steering and sailing rules, buoyage system, navigation lights, sound and light signals and safe boat operations. Please obtain a copy of the (free) Victorian Recreational Boating Safety Handbook from either TSV, VicRoads or Lakes Entrance Campusto study before attending the training course.
Students are awarded a TSV certificate upon successful completion of the course, which must be presented to VicRoads to gain a Victorian Recreational Boat Licence (with or without a PWC endorsement) within 12 months of certificate issue. VicRoads charge a licence issue fee.
