About the course
Before you join this RYA powerboat instructor course, you must first complete a 1 day pre-entry skills assessment. This is so we can assess your boat handling skills and ensure that you have experience at a standard similar to that of the Level 2 powerboat course.
When you join the main 3 day course, our instructors will familiarise you with the structure and teaching methods of the Royal Yachting Association. You’ll learn how to prepare boats and equipment, how to plan and deliver effective practical and theory teaching, as well as how to assess students’ learning.
After completing this course you’ll be able to teach the RYA Levels 1 and 2 powerboat courses at any RYA Recognised Training Centre. If you hold an RYA Safety Boat certificate, you’ll also be able to teach that course.
If you aspire to teach others, you’ll need to be an experienced powerboater with excellent communication and people management skills.
Before you join this course you must:
- be aged 16 or over
- be an RYA member
- have completed the pre-entry assessment
- hold an RYA Powerboat Level 2 course certificate
- hold a current first aid certificate
