An Irish Sailing Training Centre is an organisation that has, in partnership with the Irish Sailing, undertaken to provide quality tuition and training to national and international standards.

Irish Sailing certified training courses can only be run at accredited Irish Sailing Training Centres, by suitably-qualified staff, who follow the relevant national syllabus, use appropriate well-maintained equipment and have adequate safety support. The Irish Sailing through its Inspectors continuously monitors its recognised centres to ensure that operating standards are being maintained.

Thinking of Doing a Course?

An Irish Sailing training course provides the ideal way to get afloat for the first time, or to build on skills you already have. All courses are run to a syllabus used all over Ireland and will be lead by a trained and qualified Irish Sailing Instructor. Each course is carefully designed to provide you with all of the skills and confidence you need to get you out on the water and to get the most out of your boating.

Why Choose an Irish Sailing Accredited Centre?

Irish Sailing accredited centres have qualified instructors working with structured and organised syllabus and programmes for each of the Irish Sailing Training Schemes. This means the standard of instruction and certification is uniform from centre to centre. Participants on an Irish Sailing course will be taught using a step by step syllabus, used and approved throughout Ireland.

Where to do your Irish Sailing Training Course?

Irish Sailing Training Centres have all gone through a rigorous accreditation process to ensure that they provide high quality training in a safe environment. With Training Centres based in every corner of Ireland there are plenty to choose from for training close to home or while on holiday.
