Location Details

Servicing the Hervey Bay region Chris has extensive knowledge of the waterways and surrounding area to get you up to speed with the local tips and tricks to navigating the local area. He has been working in the maritime industry since 2016 based out of Hervey bay and over 25 years of recreational boating around Australia. After years of running Boab Boats in Hervey Bay he has seen most of the common aspects of boating that people get wrong! from this we can teach you the right way to do things.

You will be dealing with an organization with an enviable reputation, leading the boat licence Industry in quality course delivery and total customer satisfaction.

Formal training is compulsory for vessels powered by a motor over 4.5kW (6hp) and for a Jet Ski. This is a condition set by Maritime Safety Queensland. Your training covers all aspects of recreational boating which includes legislation requirements and practical skills.

At the end of the training you will be required to undertake a theory exam to be deemed competent. Once you have completed the training, you will be issued with a statement of competency which is not your licence. You must present the statement of competency, a licence application form and acceptable evidence of identity in person at a Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads customer service centre within six months of the date of issue of the statement of competency.
Remember Allstate Boat Licensing provides training and assessment for jet ski licences also.
