There is a PPR taster video so you can learn about the PPR before signing up.

To take the PPR course via ASTO, we will need your full name, email address and confirmation from the member organisation that you sail with. We will then create an account for you and you will receive an email with your login details. Only then will you be able to access the course on the RYA Interactive website.
