Recreational Skipper’s Ticket (RST)

Every skipper of a recreational vessel powered by a motor greater than 4.5kwp (6hp) is required to hold a Recreational Skipper’s Ticket.

Recreational Skippers Ticket RST Perth Course

The RST is a qualification based on a set of national marine safety competencies that a skipper must demonstrate. The RST will ensure that the people in charge of recreational vessels have the minimum skills and knowledge to protect themselves, their passengers, and to share the waterways safely with others.

This RST course has a classroom theory component and practical on water skills component. Students will learn the basic power boat handling skills, compulsory safety equipment, weather forecasting, collision regulations, vessel knowledge and basic navigation. The course incorporates the theory and practical assessments for the Department of Transport Recreational Skippers Ticket.

Anyone from the age of 14 years and up can hold an RST, however those under the age of 17 will be restricted to a speed of 8 knots and may only skipper a vessel in daylight hours. On their 17th birthday, this becomes an Open RST ticket with no age restrictions; there is no need to requalify.

Course cost: $230 Members  $260 Non-Members

Youth Recreational Skipper’s Ticket

Hillarys Yacht Club understands that sometimes courses can be daunting for youngsters when surrounded by adults that they may not know. For that reason, we also run a Youth RST course which covers exactly the same content and qualification as the main RST course for those aged 14 -16. We believe this provides a more enjoyable learning experience for our youngsters where the teaching is tailored to suit this age group.

Depending on your requirements, those aged 14-16 are most welcome to join our standard RST course or our Youth RST course – there is no difference in cost or content. Please make your selection carefully in the registration form below.
