Professional Practices and Responsibilities (PPR)

Professional Practices and Responsibilities

PPR is a compulsory online course for new and revalidating holders of RYA Commercial Endorsement.

Four modules

The course consists of four subject areas.

  • Commercial environment – how you fit into the professional maritime world
  • People – the importance of correct manning, keeping your skills up to date and the safe management of commercial vessels
  • Vessel – the compulsory carriage and maintenance of safety equipment and how to create and implement risk control and operating procedures
  • 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

Mock assessment

Following the modules there is a mock assessment so you can check you are ready before moving on to the final graded online assessment.

The RYA estimates users will take around six to eight hours to work through the four course modules.

End of course assessment

The graded end of course assessment is split into two sections, totalling 2 ½ hours.
