Each year we run a considerable number of RYA Powerboat Instructor, RYA Advanced Powerboat Instructor and RYA Personal Watercraft (‘Jetski’) Instructor courses. So far this year we have run 5 PBI courses and these are invariably run by Paul and Nye. Our location in Poole Harbour is exceptional for these courses as we can expose potential instructors to the full range of teaching situations they may face and help them to understand the key aspects of becoming an effective instructor.
For every PBI course we run we offer the option for new Instructors to come and sit in on a Level 2 course ahead of attending the PBI course then afterwards we will arrange for them to come and join in on a real Level 2 course alongside one of our highly experienced instructors. We have been offering these options for years and it has become a really beneficial part of these courses.
Also within the PBI & PWI courses we always have what we call “guinea pigs” which are real people with little/no existing experience for the potential instructors to teach – if you have no experience and would like to be put on our list of potential GPs then email/call.
Finally – congratulations to Chris & Peter who are the latest additions to the world of being a RYA Powerboat Instructor – well done!!
