  • How are the PNB practices?

    Exceeding the navigation practices corresponding to the title of Basic Navigation Skipper (PNB) is one of the mandatory requirements to achieve the aforementioned nautical qualification. This is established by Royal Decree 875/2014, of October 10, which regulates nautical titles for the pleasure boat government.
  • Where do I have to do the PNB practices? How long do they last?

    To accredit the completion of the practices, it is necessary that you have done them in a certified nautical school in Spain.

    The PNB Navigation practices, also known as Motor practices, have a minimum duration of 8 hours.

    On the other hand, remember that another of the mandatory requirements to obtain the PNB is to conduct a Radio internship. These have a duration of 4 hours and you can also find them in Sailwiz.
