The RAK Marine Training Institute, recently founded to meet the growing demand for specialist marine training in Ras Al Khaimah and the Northern Emirates, has announced its inaugural drivers' course for vessels up to 12 m.
The course is fully accredited by the UAE Federal Transport Authority (FTA), and will soon become mandatory for boat owners of this category within the country, said a statement from the institute.
The first delivery of the course will take place on April 25 (theory day) and April 26 (practical day) at Al Hamra Marina, Ras Al Khaimah, it stated.
The institute also informed that further courses will be held each week during the summer.
Those completing the course will qualify for a UAE licence for driving vessels up to 12 m, and students will also be provided with the opportunity to qualify for RYA Powerboat 2, which is the equivalent of vessels up to 12 m, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
