About the Learning & Assessment Process

Learning the rules requires the same amount of time either way. You can choose to do the learning with us in the classroom, or study online at times that suit you and in the comfort of your own home.

A regulated closed book theory exam must be done in the presence of; and under control of our approved instructor. Additionally you will do the practical on-water training and assessment with us.

When you have completed all training and assessment, a Course Completion Certificate will be given to you so you can take it to Qld Transport to obtain your licence and pay their fee.

The boat licence course timings are regulated by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, and takes a minimum of 6.5 hours to complete; including assessments, theory and practical. Additional regulated time is required if also doing the PWC licence.


Brenton is a Far North Queensland local having been born and raised in Innisfail and spending most of his life on or around water. He realised very early that he had an opportunity to make one of his biggest loves into a career and began his nautical qualification studies. He spent 5 years working with Sea Swift in Cairns starting as a deck hand but quickly impressing management with his enthusiasm and ability and working his way up the ranks until, at the age of 21, he became one of the youngest ever to achieve his Master 4 qualification.

Brenton is keen to hear from anyone who would like training and assessing for a recreational boat licence or personal water craft licence. He has recently purchased a state of the art 4200 SmartWave boat to allow anyone wishing to undertake the training to do so in safety and comfort. The boat is in full survey and is the ideal boat to learn in and become confident with.

So if you live anywhere between Cardwell and Cairns or inland to the Atherton Tablelands and would like to learn how to safely operate a boat or obtain a boat or jetski licence, Brenton would love to hear from you. Give him a call on 0448 814 655 and you'll be on the water in no time.
