RST – Recreational Skippers Ticket
NPHC - National Powerboat Handling Certificate
Recreational Skippers Ticket
All persons in charge of recreational power craft including jet skis and yachts with motors fitted or having the capacity to fit a motor MUST obtain an RST.
The aim of this course is to give those with little or no experience in handling small powered boats an insight into the safe use of such craft and the equipment they must carry. As well as knowledge of the aspects of seamanship. navigation aids and weather which govern their use.
The course consists of a Theory and Practical component.
Will take place on a weekday during the evening at EFYC. Will start at 6pm and will go on until approximately 9pm.
This is a review session followed by the multiple choice theory assessment. To pass the theory portion of the RST you will need to obtain a mark of 80% or higher. You will not be able to complete the practical assessment until you successfully pass the theory assessment.
Please note: This session is designed as a review only and you will need to have a good understanding of the material contained in the RST Workbook before attending.
