Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR) - is a compulsory online course for new and revalidating RYA Commercial Endorsement holders. The aim of the course is to introduce seafarers to relevant legislation applicable to them, including SOLAS, COSWoP, MARPOL, Flag State, Port State Authorities and the Code of Practice.
This is an Online course. Once booked you will be sent a log in and password for the RYA Interactive site. Once logged on for the first time you will be asked for some information and to change your password. Once you have completed the course you can print your pass certificate ready to send with your commercial endorsement.
After completing the course, you have the opportunity to practice with three mock assessments before opening the final graded online assessment. We estimate users will take around 6-8 hours to work through the four course modules. The graded assessment is split into two sections, each with a maximum time limit of 1 hour.
In the commercial world you are a professional seafarer, whatever your job is on board,. As such, you are no different from the captain of a cruise liner; you have a duty of care to crew, to passengers, and to other water users, and you will be held to account if things go wrong. The RYA PPR (Professional Practices & Responsibilities) course will introduce you to these responsibilities and from April 2012 is required in order to endorse commercially your RYA/MCA Certificate of Competence.
Nothing needed. This is a "Home Study" course.
