Powerboat Instructor course –3 days, cost £450
Pre-Skills assessment cost £100
Before attending a Powerboat Instructor course you will need have have passed the pre-skills assessment, we have an assessment scheduled before the Instructor course starts. You’ll also need a valid First Aid Certificate.
The first 2 days of the Powerboat Instructor course look at how to best teach the powerboat syllabus and teaching technique. Candidates will be teaching parts of the syllabus under guidance.
The last day consists of the moderation of the course by a second trainer. Candidates will continue the same pattern, but with another trainer to check consistency of the course and to give a second look at the individuals.
During the course candidates will be asked to present a short, classroom presentation on a topic that they have prepared. They’ll also be asked to run sessions afloat. The topics are from the powerboat logbook (G20) and are typical of those that a RYA Powerboat Instructor may be called upon to present.
Courses can be arranged for groups on request. Advanced Powerboat Instructor training also available.
RYA books designed to accompany the courses can be purchased through the online RYA book shop.
