Up­dated edi­tion of skip­per’s ticket book re­leased

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

RIVER users want­ing to get their Recre­ational Skip­per’s Ticket (RST) will ben­e­fit from the re­lease of a new edi­tion of the RST Work­book with more self-test ques­tions, di­a­grams and boat­ing ad­vice.

Depart­ment of Trans­port gen­eral man­ager of marine safety Ray Buch­holz said the work­book con­tained up-to­date in­for­ma­tion for those want­ing to ob­tain an RST.

“It is a com­plete guide to ob­tain­ing the RST which is com­pul­sory in WA for peo­ple in charge of a recre­ational ves­sel pow­ered by an en­gine with more than 6hp,” Mr Buch­holz said.

“Not only is the work­book an es­sen­tial tool for gain­ing an RST, it is a good ref­er­ence for the ex­ist­ing 214,000 RST hold­ers in WA to re­fresh and up­date their knowl­edge.”

Each year the Depart­ment of Trans­fers dis­trib­utes ap­prox­i­mately 25,000 RST work­books.
