It's as easy as ABC

Accredited BoatSafe RTO

Course numbers are limited to maximize your training experience

Whilst fun, being a skipper also comes with a lot of responsibility. There are many skills and a lot of knowledge required to safely operate a Boat or jet Ski, it’s not brain surgery though, so you don’t have to stress on it. Everyone knows a car licence needs multiple lessons as there’s many skills and knowledge required to drive a car. Same goes for skippering a boat, and just like going for a car licence you will probably need more than one practical lesson so you can pass the formal practical assessment.

These processes in accordance with the Boatsafe Licence Scheme are designed to make you a safe and competent skipper. Let ABC get you on the water with the right training and using the type of vessels you are more likely to drive.
