The PPR course is a mandatory course for all skippers seeking to commercially endorse for the first time and all existing skippers at their revalidation.

Did it a year or so ago, on a quiet Saturday and Sunday in Barra.
A good internet connection is essential, lots of windows open simultaneously can get confusing, so I relied on reopening the required source documents as the need arised. If you do all the 'practice' papers some of the questions will come up in the actual exam. Ambiguous answers will become clearer if you go back to them and reread the 'small print' in the various codes etc.
I got 100% in both papers with time to spare..... but if you don't drink, there's not much else to do in Barra on a wet weekend!

Yay - aced it with 100% and plenty of time to spare.

I found having a glass of wine first helped.
