Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR) with Barcelona Watersports

Each year approximately 4,500 people apply to the RYA for a commercial endorsement in order to use their RYA qualifications professionally either as skipper or crew. This involves anything from delivering a new yacht, driving a work boat with lifting and towing gear or running a superyacht in the Med. Whatever your job is onboard, in the commercial world you are a professional seafarer. As such, you have a duty of care to crew, passengers and other water users and you will be held to account if things go wrong.

The course is broken down into four modules:
1. Commercial Environment – how you fit into the professional maritime world.
2. People – the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels.
3. Vessel – the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures.
4. Purpose – making sure your vessel is suitable and legal for the work you are carrying out, your obligations in protecting the environment, appropriate planning and situational awareness.

Course Assessment
Following the modules there is a mock assessment so you can check if you are ready before moving on to the final graded online assessment. We estimate users will take around 6 to 8 hours to work through the four course modules. The graded end of course assessment is split into two sections, totalling 2 hours. All new applicants for a commercially endorsed RYA Certificate of Competence must first pass the PPR course. Anyone renewing a commercially endorsed RYA Certificate of Competence must pass the PPR course prior to their next renewal date, if they haven’t already done so.

How to take the PPR course
The PPR course is run by RYA recognised training centres. Barcelona Watersports will provide remote access to an instructor who will be on hand to help if you have any queries during the online course. This course can only be completed online and once you have booked with us we will send you your username and password to start online training.

Course Cost: €50
