Boating Course (PPCDL)

PPCDL is required for operators of engine-powered/ jet-propelled pleasure craft (with SZ or SZH license). It ensures that boaters are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate their craft safely within the port waters. The PPCDL also allows relevant enforcement agencies to easily identify the operator.

Requirements a) Be at least 16 years of age
b) Produce a valid certificate issued by a medical practitioner certifying that he/she has passed a sight test and is not physically handicapped
