A taster video of the course can be accessed here – Online PPR Taster Video.

If you are thinking of taking the Advanced Powerboat ‘exam’ we would suggest taking the PPR before your ‘exam’ as it will increase your overall awareness. The RYA estimate users will take around 6 to 8 hours to work through the four course modules. The graded end of course assessment is split into two sections, totalling 2 ½ hours. The cost of the course is £39. This includes the course and online/telephone support from our Instructors if needed.

There is no requirement to buy a book to complete the course but there is a book available to accompany the course if you wish and that can be purchased here – RYA Shop – Commercial Regulations
