Powerboat Instructor Course
The Powerboat Instructor is a competent, experienced helm who has been trained to teach power boating up to Level 2 under the supervision of the Principal or Chief Instructor of an RYA Recognised Training Centre.
Candidates should have logged at least five seasons’ experience of power boating, preferably in a range of boat types and sizes. For those who use powerboats as an integral part of their normal full-time occupation, this period is reduced to one season.
Candidates will already hold the RYA Level 2 powerboat certificate and a valid first aid certificate
No candidate under the age of 16 will be accepted for training.
Prior to the instructor training course, candidates must attend a skills assessment.
Candidates will attend a three day instructor course run by an RYA Powerboat Trainer and assessed by an independent Trainer. The course will consist of: principles of practical instruction, lesson planning, teaching styles, use of questioning, preparation and use of visual aids, assessment of students’ learning, explanation and presentation of theory subjects, the structure of the scheme, planning progressive teaching sessions, preparation of boats and equipment, teaching methods to Level 2.
Instructor certificates are valid for five years from the date of issue, provided that a valid first aid certificate and current membership of the RYA is maintained.
