PNB Frequently Asked Questions

The price of the PNB title will depend on the modality you choose, you can choose between motorized PNB, PNB plus the Sailing qualification or PNB with the extension to navigate between the peninsula and Baleras, the latter being the most complete. 

It depends on the aspirations of the candidate: the GNP may be easier to obtain, but its powers, especially regarding maximum length and maximum distance from the coast, may be too limited. If you think that navigation is your thing and that the GNP is going to be insufficient for your needs, you can obtain the PER directly.

At the Anclademia nautical school we offer you different methods of obtaining the PNB: you can go to our facilities, in the Port Olimpic of Barcelona, to take the course in person, or you can opt for the online version, which will allow you to study for the exam at your own pace from anywhere.

Both the official exams and the practical exams are held monthly, so, depending on the level of commitment and the time that each person can dedicate to the course, it is feasible to obtain the title in one month.

The PER title exam is carried out by the Generalitat and it is the organization itself that is in charge of correcting and publishing the official notes. The days after the exam, the exam correction is published, which you can verify yourself with the solutions template, although the official notes may take up to 2 weeks.
