Senior Instructor's Get Ready for 2021

Senior Instructor's Get Ready for 2021


Instructors Upskill to Senior Instructor

With careful planning Lough Derg Yacht Club hosted a successful Senior Instructor course for 13 experienced instructors from a range of Clubs and Training centres around Ireland.

Covid 19 regulations meant the planned course in June had to be postponed and when new regulations came out on the Tuesday before the scheduled August course some adaptations were required but with the co-operation of all involved we were able to run a really successful 5 day programme for the 13 participants.

The course encourages experience sharing amongst the participants and brings out new innovative ideas on how to manage and develop Irish Sailing training programmes for small boat sailing, windsurfing and powerboating. The broad range of skills and experience from each instructor's background combined with the practical focus on delivery creates a strong training programme.

Topics covered on the course include:

  • Risk Assessment and Standard Operating Procedures
  • Irish Sailing Policies and Procedures
  • Training course programming and delivery
  • Team management and communication skills
  • Mentoring skills
  • Problem solving

Due to popular demand, we have scheduled another course before the year ends ...
