Four steps you need to complete to obtain your licence

  • Step 1: Firstly, online theory training to complete the BoatSafe accredited course in preparation for the formal theory assessment & must be completed prior to practical boat or PWC training
  • Step 2: Next, put that theory into practice by undergoing practical boat or PWC training on the water to become competent to complete your practical assessment
  • Step 3: Once you have mastered both the theory and practical training sections. Complete Theory & Practical assessment. These are done to the Boatsafe standards
  • Step 4: You’ve done it … now take your Statement of Competency to Queensland Transport within 6 months to obtain your Marine Licence
