When you arrive you will be required to complete the Department of Transport paperwork.  You will need to show original ID, sign a medical/eyesight declaration and, if under 18, provide a parent/guardian consent form.

It is important to read the information in your Skippers ticket workbook regarding this, please refer to Chapter 1 pages 6 to 8 (see 'Useful Links').  If you do not provide the necessary ID or forms on the day you will not be permitted to start the course.

If you can produce your current valid Australian Driver's licence or Learner's Permit with photo ID, this is all you may need, an eyesight test is not required.  

If you cannot produce these you will need to provide other forms of ID and you will need an eyesight test before the course.  You will also need to complete a medical declaration on the day of the course, if you have a medical condition that the Department of Transport are not aware of, a medical must be completed before the course!

Please call us if you have a medical condition to discuss if you need a medical prior to starting the course. 

Eyesight and medical tests, if required, must be completed on specific Department of Transport Forms - please see the 'Useful Links'.

For the practical training and assessment, sun protection such as long sleeves, sunglasses and a hat are recommended.  Non-marking footwear is useful to avoid hot surfaces.  Water and sun cream are supplied on board although you are welcome to bring your own.  Please dress appropriately as it may be cool and windy.
