Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card



Do you have the Pleasure Craft Operator Card – PCOC?


Transport Canada's Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations require operators, of pleasure crafts fitted with a motor and used for recreational purposes, to have proof of competency on board at all times. Consequently, anyone taking the helm is required to have the Card, regardless of whether the motor is operating or not. The Card is valid for life.


Through its instructors accredited by Sail Canada, the CENTRE offers preparation courses in French and English and the written test. The CENTRE also provides the Card.

You may obtain your PCOC from elsewhere, but you need to have at least a Basic Membership in order to take the PCOC Certification offered by the CENTRE.
