Senior instructor Courses now open for booking
"Yes I know we’re only just finished what has been a pretty hectic season for most Clubs and Training Centres and everyone is probably looking forward to some quiet time, but before you switch off just be sure to have any eye towards your instructor requirements for next year!" Dave Garvey, Training Development Officer
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 Senior Instructor course of this season is taking place over two weekends, in early November is now open for bookings in the Online Shop.
Two further courses are Dublin March 16th – 20th and Galway last weekend in March and first Weekend in April, will be open for bookings shortly.
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, 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.
