During your Powerboat Training Course you'll get to explore Lough Corrib, learning how to navigate around the islands and enjoy the amazing surrounds that Galway and Mayo have to offer.
We offer a range of Powerboat Training Courses including the Introduction to Powerboating, National Powerboat Certificate, Intermediate Powerboat Certificate, Safety Boat Certificate, Coastal Navigation for Small Boats Certificate and the Advanced Powerboat Certificate.
We also provide a pathway for those interested in working towards the Powerboat Instructor qualification offering Powerboat Pre-Entry Assessments , Powerboat Instructor Courses and Powerboat Instructor Conversion courses at all levels on the Irish Sailing Powerboat Training Courses scheme.
The National Powerboat Certificate allows you to apply for the 'International Certificate of Competency' (ICC). The aim of the ICC is to provide boat owners and people wishing to charter boats abroad with an internationally recognised document certifying their competence to skipper a boat for recreational use.
The Irish Sailing National Powerboat Certificate is a 2 day course covering the skills and knowledge required to safely skipper a powerboat keeping yourself and your crew safe while afloat. This is considered the 'Driving Licence' for Boats in Ireland.
