We are very fortunate to have our Powerboat school situated in Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its large area of sheltered water which is ideal for year round boat training. It is the perfect location to carry out the many scenarios that are required in powerboat training such as moorings, pontoons, fairways, slipways, commercial and leisure traffic, etc. If you have a little experience, our National Powerboat Certificate (driving licence) will give you the basic skills. You start your training in a small 3.6 metre RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) and then progress up to a 5.85 metre RIB. This allows you to be certified for both tiller and console type boats. If you are experienced and require the Certificate, a direct assessment is also available. When you have been certified with the above courses, you can automatically apply for your ICC International Certificate of Competence.
Once you have completed your National Powerboat Certificate and have some experience logged up, you might like to further your training with Safety Boat (rescue boat work), Advanced Powerboat, Dive Coxswain (skippering a dive boat) or Sports Boat (everyday boating). All courses are part of the Irish Sailing Association National Powerboat Training Scheme and are recognised by the Department of the Marine.
