Commercial Endorsement of Certificates of Competency for passenger boat licence requirements
Following a review by the Marine Surveyors Office in the Department of Transport we have been informed that RYA Certificates of Competency, along with certain other UK issued ancillary certifications, are no longer valid for Commercial Endorsement in Ireland effective 1/1/21.
A document detailing the list of currently valid Certificates of Competency and ancillary qualifications eligible for Commercial Endorsements is available here and a full guide to commercial endorsements for passenger boat licences is available here.
Commercial Endorsements of RYA personal proficiency certificates issued prior to this date may continue to be re-validated using the usual application process.
Any changes to syllabus, law or influences that effect training centres, clubs and classes
will be posted as OFFICIAL Notices or TRAINING NOTICES and listed here.
