Want to be an Instructor with Powerboat Training UK?

Our Instructors

Whilst we have a few full time employees the majority of those that with us are freelance Instructors, Trainers and Examiners. We always ensure that in addition to being extremely capable Instructors they share our passion for boating in all its forms. Each of our Instructors agrees to our exhaustive Operating Procedures & Safety Manual and our Risk Assessments but as importantly to uphold our mission statement:

“Powerboat Training UK prides itself on providing professional and expert instruction in a safe but fun environment. The school operates to the highest possible standards and expects all of its Instructors to uphold and surpass this expectation.”


Each year we consider applications from a few new Instructors to join our team. If you want to have a chat or send a CV then please do.

As a guide you would probably satisfy most of these criteria:

  • A natural communicator with a good sense of humour
  • An extremely competent and keen powerboater.
  • Already possessing Dayskipper (theory) or above.
  • Ideally a broad mix of boating experience across a variety of craft.
  • Probably already instructing elsewhere (see note below).
  • All relevant backup qualifications.
  • A passion for boating in all of its forms
  • A desire to progress up the instructor ladder.
  • Clearly the list above is quite demanding however we also take on one or two new Instructors from the various Instructor courses we run. So if you satisfy most of the above and are booked on an Instructor course with us (PBI/APBI or PWI) this can be a good route in.
