The Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR) Course is an online course that you need to complete as part of the qualifications to gain a commercial endorsement.

PPR Course Introduction

The RYA PPR (Professional Practices & Responsibilities) course covers the legal framework you need to adhere to in your status as a commercial operator, whatever type of vessel you work on. Whist we can’t teach the specific rules for every type of operation, the course will help you to understand and execute your duty of care, and give you principles, guidance and techniques to help you make the right choices and decisions.

The course is split into 4 sections:

  1. Commercial environment – showing how you fit into the professional maritime world.
  2. People – explaining the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels.
  3. Vessel – teaching about the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures.
  4. Purpose – making sure your vessel is suitable and legal for the work you are carrying out, your obligations in protecting the environment, appropriate planning and situational awareness.

At the end of these training modules is the online assessment.
