Call them jet skis, wave bikes, personal watercraft, PW, PWC, wave runners or wet bikes, they are effectively all the same thing! We run four separate RYA PWC courses, depending on whether you require a licence for your jet ski, would like to teach jet skis or work onboard a super yacht that runs jet skis. Click on the blue text links below to read more about the specific courses.

RYA PWC Proficiency Certificate

The basic training course for these craft is known as the RYA PWC Proficiency Course and only takes 1-day. It can lead to both the UK and the International (ICC) PWC Licences, enabling you to drive your ski in UK waters and overseas, or to hire skis for personal use.

RYA PWC Instructor Training

We also run PWC Instructor courses, both at our training centre in Southampton and on clients' own skis all over the world. The RYA PWC Instructor course is three days. Existing RYA Powerboat Instructors need only attend a one-day RYA PWC Instructor Endorsement Course to qualify as PWC Instructors.

RYA PWC Instructor Training for Super Yacht Crews

For super yachts aiming to become accredited RYA Training Centres, we offer a bespoke package whereby we come to you, train your crew onboard and even help you gain RYA accreditation. We take care of all of the paperwork and every super yacht we have worked with has gained RYA recognition at their first inspection with no further actions required. For more information on our super yacht package visit our Super Yacht PWC Training page.
