Boat

Regardless of the boat or the water, our approach will give you the confidence and skills needed to operate your boat in a safe, efficient manner. Training can be geared to in boards or outboards, propellor or jetboat engines, or any non-motorized watercraft.

A Note on Transport Canada Certifications

Our courses do not replace or include Transport Canada certifications (PCOC or SVOP, MED A3 etc.) required to operate boats for work. You obviously need the relevant Transport Canada certification in order to be compliant, but given that these courses are entirely theoretical (ie. you never get in a boat), we believe you should also have one of our practical, hands-on courses in order to learn how to operate a real boat on real water. Confused as to which certification you need? Chances are it's only a PCOC. Click here to find out which Transport Canada certification you need.

Contact Us to Organize a Course

We don't teach public, open-enrollment boat handling courses, but the minimum number of participants for a private course is only four, so contact us for more information on how to set up a course for your group.  Please note: clients must provide their own watercraft.

TESTIMONIALS

Adam Galbraith, Firefighter
Richmond Fire Department

As a full time firefighter in the lower mainland, I have been to many courses, and by far this one was one of the best! Craig Gerrard is born to do this. Not only is he a wealth of important knowledge, he is able to communicate this knowledge without ego, in a positive manner, that harbours a fun, challenging, and useful course.
