About The Event
Calling all budding instructors
The Cruising Instructor course is aimed at confident qualified Yachtmasters ready for the next step. The qualification allows you to teach RYA courses including Competent Crew and Day Skipper practical courses. The five day course is a blend of assessing the candidate's knowledge, providing a structured framework to instruct, coach, observe and deliver constructive feedback and ensure the structure and standards required of RYA courses up to Day Skipper Practical are understood.
Over the week you will receive assessment and indepth tuition on:
- Instructional Techniques
- Boat and sail handling
- Course and Lesson planning
- Briefing and debriefing skills
- Personal skills
Due to the short time available on this course, there is limited opportunity to fill any gaps in knowledge. Candidates must therefore ensure they have sufficient underpinning knowledge prior to attending this course/assessment.
Applicants must have a valid commercially endorsed RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate of Competence and must be proficient in diesel engine maintenance, radar and boat handling skills. On reaching Instructor standard you will be awarded your RYA Cruising Instructor endorsement which is valid for 5 years and allows you to teach RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper Practical Courses at any RYA Training Centre.
