About Us

Skippers Ticket should be done in a boat, not a classroom. By letting people use their own boat they are familiar with it, our assessors can also then give new skippers hints on using it in their own familiar surroundings

Trainer Profile:

We have around 20 skippers ticket trainers (seasonally rising in summer) who range in Qualifications from Master Unlimited (previously called Masters 1, which is the highest possible level of certification, allowing operation of the largest vessels on the planet), YachtMasters, Masters 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1, as well as some extremely experienced Coxswains.

We only hire the best. All skippers ticket trainers are local users of the ramps and waters where they train. We don’t hire interstate or overseas boaters who don’t know your area. So feel free to chat to them and ask questions about the areas you will be boating. We do a LOT more than just Skippers Tickets because of the experience of our great group of trainers assessors scattered all around WA.
