Step 1 Check for Medical Conditions

Medical Disclosure Statement:

It is a requirement of the Transport Operation (Marine Safety) Act 1994 that a licence candidate is to complete and sign a Medical Disclosure Statement.

This declaration states that you have no medical or other impairments that would prevent you from discharging your general safety obligation to operate a Recreational Vessel or Personal Watercraft.

Please Note:  A Medical Certificate issued to operate a Motor Vehicle is not Valid to operate a vessel.

The following provides some examples of medical conditions which may affect the safe operation of a vessel:

  • Vision impairment
  • Hearing impairment
  • Cardiovascular condition
  • Psychiatric conditions
  • Neurological disorders
  • Respiratory disorder
  • Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
  • Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus
  • Moderate or severe sleep disorder
  • Musculoskeletal conditions that impede mobility or agility

 If you feel that you may have some medical condition which could prevent you from complying with these requirements you are advised to contact the Boatsafe Administration Officer of Queensland Transport, Maritime Safety on 07 3066 3881 to discuss the matter prior to commencing the course. The Medical Disclosure Statement will be provided on the day and must be signed prior to the issue of your Statement of Competency.

Once the Training is completed there will be no refund offered if it is established that you do not comply with the medical requirements.

Your Training Provider will not enter into any discussions on your Medical Condition other than to ensure the Medical Disclosure Statement has been signed.

Step 6 Re read through the workbook

 Read through the attached Work Book to assist you with what you need to be aware of,  before starting the Online or Face to Face theory and practical assessment on the water.  It is a resource/reference only. Do not print  –  as we have the latest workbook for your use and future reference, available if required.

Step 7 Complete the Practical Component

The practical component consists of similar multiple choice questions of approximately half to an hour as in the online quiz but in the presence of our Assessor.  This is to satisfy the Transport Dept. that you have actually done the online theory. We then conduct the on water boat practical of at least 1.5 hours collectively with other students in the class, then the ski practical of a minimum of 20 minutes – one on one with our Assessor.

The practical assessments are to demonstrate your competency in relation to the standards.

What to Bring with you:- Photo ID (Drivers Licence or Other);  Appropriate clothing for the day, sunscreen, hat, water etc…… For the ski practical, depending on the conditions of the day, usually requires appropriate clothing such as rash shirts, suitable shorts and a spray jacket as students often get wet and cold from spray etc.   

Step 8 Present Your Certificate of Competency for your Marine Licence

When deemed competent the student is issued with the Boat Safe Statement of Competencies for the Boat and/or Ski Licences. They are then required to make application to the Dept. of Transport for the individual licenses. 

Note there is an additional fee.
