Helping you gain a boat or jetski (PWC) licence

At National Maritime College we are passionate about helping fellow boat and PWC enthusiasts gain valuable boating knowledge, and their boat licence in no time at all. That's why we offer half-day theory courses and one-day courses to teach you everything you need to pass your boat or PWC licence test and we help you to apply the knowledge learned on the water so that you can secure your licence quickly, and with confidence.

Boat and PWC licence tests in Sydney, Melbourne and regional areas in between

The courses go beyond just the State Rules teaching the "How" and "Why" of boating so that you gain more in-depth knowledge and experience to feel more prepared for the many situations the waterways and the sea can throw at you.

We offer boat licence courses, theory only courses,  PWC licence courses and combined packages if you wish to get your boat and PWC licence at the same time, all in one-day with practical or, in a short half-day theory course and including both licence tests. There is also a NSW Restricted Licence available for 12 and under 16 year olds.
