Most adults start their powerboat training with the RYA Powerboat Level 2 qualification. Recognised in many countries around the world this two-day entry level course provides the skills and background knowledge needed to drive a powerboat and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence. It is anticipated that this qualification will soon become mandatory in Qatar for all drivers of any powered craft on the water.
Powerboat Level 2 focuses on low speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planing speed, and collision regulations.
