Scheduling Instructor Courses

Before you consider scheduling Instructor Courses you need to take the following steps.

Read the following document. This document outlines details and guidelines on setting up and running ISA Instructor & Coach Training Courses.

For Instructor Trainer contact details see here.
Schedule/Register your course online. Course approval takes 1-2 working days after which time your course will appear on the courses running list.
Before you put any candidates forward for the instructor course make sure all of your candidates fulfill all the pre-requisites necessary for the course in question.

For example for a basic Dinghy Instructor Course ensure all candidates are 17, have a National Powerboat Certificate, VHF Certificate, First Aid Certificate and have passed the pre-entry assessment.

For details on pre-entry assessments and pre-requisites for courses see here.
Once candidates fulfill all requirements ask your course participants to register with the ISA online using their current email address. This means your candidates have created their own ISA profile which they will need as Instructors. If candidates already hold an instructor qualification they already have an ISA profile and DO NOT need to re-register. Once numbers have been finalised contact the ISA to order instructor packs.
