Powerboat Instructor 
 
Neil, the school's principal, is a Powerboat and PWC trainer. Courses are run to strict RYA guidelines; there are certain pre-course requirements which are listed on the relevant pages linked below. 
 
Courses are run on an "on-demand" basis and are subject to the minimum course numbers. Please contact us for proposed course dates and to inform us of your availability. 
 
Duration: 3 days 
 
Requirements: Hold the RYA Level 2 powerboat certificate, valid First aid certificate, and ideally have navigation knowledge to Day Skipper theory standard. Potential instructors are required to have plenty of practical experience of handling a variety of different powerboats. 
 
Course Content: Latest RYA guidelines require all PBI candidates to undertake a pre-course assessment to ensure you are ready for the course and allow you to work on any shortfalls. This 1 day session costs £120 and has been a positive change which has increased pass rates. 
 
The 3 days of the actual course will be spent both in the classroom and on the water covering the RYA Scheme, teaching styles, lesson planning, presentations, improving your own powerboating and will include time with “real” students. The course is run by an RYA Powerboat trainer who will be joined by another Trainer on day 3 to act as moderator.
