Practical assessment will include all elements of the Powerboat Level 2 direct assessment and be conducted along with other candidates under observation by the Trainer.


Upon completion, the Trainer will make an entry into the candidate’s logbook G20 giving details of the venue, date and outcome. Trainers are encouraged to record details of both passes and failures.  


Unsuccessful candidates will have the reasons for not passing explained to them. The Trainer will offer guidance in what is needed to achieve their goal. This will be in the form of a short action plan.


If an action plan is set and partial reassessment is required the candidate must complete this before attending an instructor course. Trainers will check that a candidate is eligible before accepting them on to an instructor training course.  


Successful candidates should endeavour to attend their Instructor training course within 12 months of passing the Powerboat Skills Assessment.
