Book on a  Powerboat Instructor Course & Pre-skills Assessment below.  Future dates are available, please contact the office for details. 

Before attending a Powerboat Instructor course you will need to have passed the pre-skills assessment, we have an assessment scheduled before the Instructor course starts.

The first two days of the Powerboat Instructor course look at how to best teach power boat 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 you will be asked to present a short, classroom presentation on a topic you have prepared as well as sessions afloat.
