Inland Waterways Helmsman's Course

This course is designed for those wanting to cruise the UK's and Europe's network of lakes, rivers and canals. It deals specifically with the requirements of the inland boater, whether they be a narrow boat owner or cruiser enthusiast. It assumes no prior knowledge and so is ideal for the first timer, yet the more seasoned boater will learn plenty of tricks of the trade and tips to make their boating safer and more enjoyable. Courses take place over two days and can be taken either on a centre's boat or your own. The minimum age to take this course is 12 years old, however, before you book a course check with the training centre that their boat is suitable.
