Terms and conditions for boat
and PWC licence courses

Any student or visitor must accept the Sea School policies, guidelines and safety procedures on arrival. If this document is unavailable or unseen on the day by you, other members of your group or family, this agreement is between all parties and the conditions and the intent of this document is understood and undisputed.

Literacy and numeracy

Language and learning difficulties are not always catered for. You must be able to communicate orally and in writing in English. If you have difficulties in this regard we recommend that you contact Roads and Maritime Services Head Office on 13 22 13 and given time they can arrange a remedial teacher or interpreter.

Be prepared

Download the map and directions for the venue. Please arrange to be well rested, have breakfast and allow plenty of time to arrive safely and on time. If you need directions or you are lost or late call the trainer or the training centre direct.

Passport photos

PWC (jet ski) applications require 2 passport photos on a light background, on the day (photos are not required for boat Licence only candidates). Gently, clearly, and in small print write your name and date of birth on the reverse side of each photo.

Participation

All candidates are encouraged to attend, actively listen, participate and demonstrate competencies back to the assessor. It is your responsibility and vital to your training and safety to complete all training and assessment milestones. Those not applying for a Licence are not allowed to attend the course or the practical boating.

OHS and safety

Sea School safety map and school policies will be issued to all arrivals. Listen to the directions of staff at all times and during drills, fire alarms and muster signals. Take care on the vessels, wharf, ramp, and pontoon and when boarding the vessel/s. Vessel walkways (companionways) must remain clear at all times. Strict clothing and footwear guidelines apply.

Photographic permission

You give authorisation to the Sea School companies to freely use any photographs and images for training purposes, recording of client training, recognition statements, promotion and web networking. If you are not willing to be in any training images, photos or videos you are required to advise Sea School on arrival.

Smoking

Not permitted aboard the training vessels or within the venue or classroom. Smoking is allowed in designated areas/ashtrays, and well away from flammable liquids.

First aid

A designated first aid officer and first aid supplies are available at the training centre and onboard each training vessel. All injuries sustained onsite or on the water should be reported to the head office and the trainer. If you require first aid you must quickly, loudly and firmly ask for help.

Change of venue / breakdown

Late notice of a change of venue or arrival time may happen and is usually due to the weather conditions, berthing facilities or vessel maintenance. Even with a continual maintenance regime, the vessel may at times breakdown. Often the trainer can fix the problem 'on the spot'. If not, the theory and/or practical session will be rescheduled by the office or trainer and at a time suitable for us both. Refunds are not available, only rescheduled training times.
