Prerequisite: Basic Powerboat Course

Night Operations Course includes instructor reviews, self study and one “on the water” session at night. Practical skills learned includes night navigation planning, night systems and procedures, night vision, aids to navigation, leave and enter harbor and return to slip/dock at night.

Certification Means Something

LA Powerboat Academy is one of the few companies providing powerboat certification on the West Coast. The truth is, powerboating has little regulation, so if you want to learn, there’s no shortage of “guys that have driven a boat” that fancy themselves as instructors. And some of them are probably good, too. But if you want a certified instructor that uses the National validated skill-based standards for powerboats, you want LA Powerboat Academy teaching you (especially if you want National Certification yourself). There is simply no substitute for proven experience with US Powerboating, and that means being a true National Certified Powerboat Instructor.
