Day 1 – Powerboat Instructor Skills Assessment day £100 per person

This is a day on the water and in the classroom where we assess your ability both on and off the water. We are not trying to catch you out but just to make sure that your powerboating skills are at the level required to attend the actual course.

During the course you will cover, the principles of practical instruction, lesson planning, teaching styles, use of questioning, preparation and use of visual aids, assessment of students; learning, explanation and presentation of theory subjects, the structure of the scheme, planning progressive teaching sessions, preparation of boats and equipment, teaching methods up to RYA Powerboat level 2.

The three day course is taught by a RYA Powerboat Trainer and is moderated on the final day by a second RYA Powerboat Trainer.

To attend the course you must:
  • Hold the RYA Powerboat Level 2
  • Successfully complete Powerboat Instructor Skills Assessment
  • Have at least five season’s experience of powerboating, preferably in a range of boat types and sizes. For those who use powerboats as an integral part of their full time occupation, then this period is reduced to one season.
