Special Passenger Certificate

On any boat carrying fewer than 13 passengers, a crew member must hold a special passenger certificate.

The concept of a passenger boat exists when people are transported or received on board, other than for private use. Members of an association, even when temporarily accommodated, are subject to this regulation.

Cravic-Veillon Boating School offers a 2-day training course to provide you with the essential foundations for passenger safety and to equip you with the necessary measures in emergency situations such as fire incidents, accidental falls, aiding drowning victims, managing water leaks or groundings.
