Small vessel compliance standard

Small Vessel Compliance Program

In July of 2014 Transport Canada passed into law a new standard for recreational boating schools, TP15136, now commonly referred to as the RBS. National One Design Sailing Academy was the first recreational boating school to meet with the new standard and file its compliance report.

The new standard imposes stringent safety requirements for schools and their boats as well as required for course material. All schools are required to meet the safety and operational requirements in the Canada Shipping Act and evidence (the certificate) of participation in the Transport Canada Small Commercial Vessel Compliance Program (SVCP) must be kept on board the teaching vessel at all times.  

Note: Request to see the certificate of participation when you board any recreational boating school boat.
