RYA Assistant Instructor Training

Course Cost: £180

The AI is a competent small boat sailor who has been trained to assist instructors in teaching sailing up to the standard of the Level 2 or Stage 3 courses. They must work under the supervision of an RYA senior instructor (SI) or the chief instructor of a keelboat training centre.
As the AI’s training is limited to assisting qualified instructors and does not include first aid or powerboat handling, AIs must never be allowed to work without direct supervision.

Eligibility
Candidates must hold one of the RYA Sailing Scheme advanced modules and have the recommendation of their centre’s Principal.

Training
Training and assessment are conducted by the Principal or chief instructor of the training centre who holds a valid RYA SI certificate. The training may be based on a 20 hour course covering the RYA teaching methods for beginners (from RYA book G14). Candidates will be assessed on their teaching ability with beginners. Successful candidates will have their logbook signed and will be awarded the AI certificate by their Principal.

Certificate Validity
The AI certificate is valid only at that centre for five years.

Course Dates
Courses all year round, book on demand

Equipment Hire
The centre is open for hire all year providing you hold level one or above certificates or are of sufficient competency in the craft that you are hiring.
£15 per hour or £40 per day, all sailing equipment must be off the water by 6pm.
