Senior Instructor Courses now open for booking
The return of international travel in 2022 saw challenges in terms of Instructor availability, particularly with Advanced and Senior Instructors. With this in mind it is important to have an eye on next season in terms of planning your qualifications and instructor requirements.
Senior Instructor Courses
The Senior Instructor is key to the smooth running of the training courses and they are always in high demand during the peak season.
The first two Senior Instructor courses of this season have now been scheduled and are open for bookings in the online shop. All Senior Instructor courses are for Small Boat Sailing Scheme (dinghy, catamaran, keelboat), Powerboat and Windsurfing instructors.

A third course date will be scheduled for early / mid June and will be added to the online shop as soon as confirmed
Other instructor courses and CPD revalidations
It is also important to consider your other instructor requirements, Advanced Instructors, Dinghy Instructors, Powerboat Instructors and plan ahead for the coming season encouraging your current team to upskill or re-validate as required. All other instructor courses are organised and hosted by Clubs and Training Centres around the country. As soon as we are notified of a confirmed course it is added to the upcoming courses page of our website.
For Dinghy Instructor courses in particular October mid-term and Easter are high demand times so if you would like to schedule a course at this time it is important to engage with an Instructor Trainer early to book a course or to book early if you are looking for a place on a course.
It is important to remind instructor candidates of the other qualification pre-requisites ... Pre-entry Assessment, Powerboating Certification, Emergency Care, Safeguarding and Garda Vetting all of these can be worked on over the winter ensuring that there are no delays in certifying candidates once their courses are completed.
