Advanced Jet Boat Safety

UNBC Jet Boat course

Working with jet boats and the areas in which they operate can have high-risk situations, which could develop rather fast with serious consequences. During this three-day Advanced Jet Boat Safety course, you will gain skills and knowledge to read the water, perform technical operations, and get the most out of your jet boat and yourself.

Developed by individuals with over 40 years of commercial and recreation boat operations, this course will fine tune your abilities to boat in high and low-danger river areas. 

NOTE: This is an advanced level course. You must have least 100 hours of jet boat experience to participate. If you are newer to jet boating, consider our introductory Jet Boat Safety Course. 

Advanced Jet Boat Safety is also available as a custom offering. Please contact us at cstudies@unbc.ca to set up a course date and time that works for you and your employees.
