Introduction to Powerboating

The aim of this course is to provide a short practical introduction to boat handling and safety on powerboats being used on all Irish waters. It is ideally suited to those looking for anyone new to powerboating and those whose primary role will be as crew on a powerboat. By the end of the course participants will be able to safely and effectively crew a powerboat and take the helm while under supervision.


All the courses in the ISA Powerboat Training scheme can be taught in displacement as well as planing boats with the exception of the Advanced Certificate. The ISA Inland Waterways Scheme provides the most appropriate training for anyone wishing to use large displacement motorboats on Inland waters. The ISA Yachtmaster scheme provides for the needs of those wishing to cruise at sea & in larger Motorboats.
