Becoming A Recognised Superyacht (Jetski) Licence Training Centre

Many Captains, Charter Agents and Managing agents don't realise that you can set up a Superyacht as an RYA training centre, which means you are able to offer an RYA certificated course to your guests, owners and crew.

Having your crew qualified as RYA PWC instructors is the first step to offering safe training, but being able to follow the RYA guidelines will allow you to issue certificates (that have interpretations in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish etc) that will satisfy most waterbourne authorities. The RYA Introduction to PWC safety course takes approximately 1 hour to deliver and allows your guests, owners & crew to hold an RYA certificate for the duration of their charter. With over 500 Superyachts (4/2023) recognised as RYA training centres and more signing up weekly, the proof of success is in the numbers! 

The document required to become a PWC licence training centre is similar to a mini-ISM; called a 'Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Safety manual which is a PWC, RYA and vessel specific document. The creation of this document is within the capabilties of the senior staff onboard, but many Yachts choose to outsource this process in order to save time, or simply to ensure they have everything in place before their RYA inspection. 

Our consultants are all trained RYA Superyacht inspectors, so are fully aware of and up to date with RYA requirements and guidelines; this allows the Yacht to have a constant source of support and direction as and when questions arise through the process.

Application for RYA Training Centre Recognition Process:

  1. Submit 'RYA Expression of Interest form' to RYA at
  2. Make sure you have at least one qualified RYA PWC (Personal Watercraft) instructor onboard.
  3. Read the RYA guidance notes for training centres, RYA PWC training centre checklistRYA Powerboat training centre checklist to see if your Superyacht is suitable to become an RTE (recognised teaching establishment). Also, refer to the RYA Introduction to Personal Watercraft Safety for Guests on Superyachts Guide and the Voluntary Code of Practice for watersports in the Superyacht Industry. (Downloads of these are further down this page)
  4. Prepare all your relevant paperwork including Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), Health & Safety Manual, Risk Assessments, Emergency Action plan etc.
  5. Ensure you have all the kit the RYA require for your Tender/s  and PWC

  7. Once the application for recognition is processed an RYA inspector will be nominated to you, they will normally be based in the UK so a mutually convenient date will need to be sought, flights etc arranged. You will be liable for your inspectors travel expenses such as flights, airport transfers (and accommodation if necessary) from the UK onwards, you are however not liable for their UK related expenses. 
  8. The inspection process normally takes around 1/2 a day (please see the RYA guidance notes, RYA inspection report form and this link for what they will be looking for). 
  9. The inspector will then advise you as to whether or not he/she will be recommending you for recognition, if there are any concerns then an 'action plan' will be issued with a list of requirements/ 'jobs' that must be completed prior to recognition being granted.
  10. The inspector will then submit the inspection report form to RYA HQ (UK), assuming a positive outcome, the RYA will then send you your recognition certificate at which time you will be able to order certificates and can start offering the 'RYA Introduction to PW safety course' onboard to your guests and crew.
