Ski Boat Driver 1
The Ski Boat Driver level 1 (SBD1) is designed for anyone who wishes to drive unassisted for water skiing and/or other associated disciplines inland(non-coastal).
First of all, you will need to decide whether you need boat driving lessons, or if you have previous boat driving experience including towing skiers/riders. Our BWSW instructor will assess you and advise whether you need boat driving lessons first.
If you have the required experience, the Ski Boat Driver Level 1 is roughly a 3 hour long program consisting of a theoretical based assessment (assessment of boat driving knowledge) and a practical based assessment (assessment of boat handing skills). Prior to completing the theoretical based assessment, candidates will attend a tutoring session designed to develop understanding of a number of key topics relating to driving a ski boat on inland waters, this will take approximately 1 hour. Following this, candidates will complete 17 questions, relating to the SBD1 classroom course.
After successfully completing the SBD1 examination candidates will receive a new BWSW membership card which will state that the member is an SBD1 driver.
The practical based assessment consists of a 30 minute familiarisation session (to familiarise the candidate with the boat, the site and the assessment procedure) followed by a 15 minute slow maneuvering skills assessment and a 15 minute water ski/wakeboard driving assessment.
