RST Information - Useful Links and Forms

Recreational Skippers Ticket Course

The Western Australian Recreational Skippers Ticket is a must have for everybody who wants to drive any vessel including yachts with a motor larger than 6hp. The process of obtaining your RST should be a fun and stress free experience, so we have developed a number of models which achieve these aims. Additionally you will gain greater competence by choosing the model that best suits you.

At this time we have decided to put a hold on courses delivered at RFBYC until February 2021 while we review our process of delivery and instructor network.

If you would like to complete your RST Australian Sailing WA has a network of 52 Assessors registered to their RTO.

You can find the list of RST Assessors and their contact information HERE.

Proof of Identity

The Department of Transport requires assessors to sight proof of identity documentation.
