To enquire or book on an Cruising Instructor Course please contact the office. 

The first step in teaching within the practical motor cruising scheme is to become qualified as an RYA Cruising Instructor, before moving up to Yachtmaster Instructor. Due to the short time available on the instructor course, there is limited opportunity to fill any gaps in knowledge. The course is a blend of assessing your knowledge, providing a structured framework to instruct, coach, observe and deliver constructive feedback, and ensure the structure and standards required of RYA courses are understood. RYA Motor Cruising courses are run through our parent company SeaRegs Training.
