RPM sea school is recognized by the RYA to provide training and assessment for Power Boating levels 2, International Certificate of Competence.


Training takes place at Lyme Regis in our school boat with a maximum ratio of one instructor to three students so there is plenty of opportunity for learning.  The theory part of the course is done in our fully equipped training room, with visual aids, chart, white board and computer screen, etc.


Our school boats are well equipped with electronics and safety equipment and are capable of handling a wide range of situations.


Courses can be run on demand: midweek or at weekends and at whatever level you require from complete beginners to experienced drivers.


Our fully qualified RYA instructors, have been trained to a high standard, have first aid qualifications and have all been assessed by an independent inspector. They have extensive knowledge of the sea and the local area, backed up with practical experience from a variety of backgrounds.
