Instead of watching everyone from the jetty why not get your boat license and get out there yourself? Boab are now running boat license courses at various locations around Australia. Spend the day out on the water and get your license as well, too easy!! .
Our very hands on courses leave every student feeling confident about being out on the water, no matter their boating experience! It is ideal for those that are new to handling a power boat, however offers just as much to the experienced boaties who are looking to attain their boat license.
All training offered by Boab Powerboat Training Centres is conducted under the auspices of Yachting Australia and is made up of two parts:
1. The first comprises reading material and an interactive DVD, which can be done at home.
2. The second part is an on the water, practical session where participants learn how to drive a boat, from basic manoeuvres to more advanced skills such as emergency stops and man overboard procedures. (QLD now operating as a "Yachting Queensland BoatSafe Training Provider." Courses comprise both theory and practical sessions.)
We limit our courses to small groups of people to allow each participant the maximum time possible on the helm and the best possible learning environment, which will ultimately give you the skills and confidence required to handle a power boat in a safe manner.
At the successful completion of the course, participants receive a certificate from Yachting Australia that enables them to receive their Recreational Boating Licence with no further examinations.
Due to the one on one learning environment and the extra time our instructors can give each person, our course has become extremely popular with a diverse range of people. From school children, groups of ladies and those that have an emphasis for learning the practical side of boating, which let's face it, is probably the single most important aspect when it comes to driving a power boat.
