Power boaters are vital for our sport often the most important fleet within any training centre or club, they ensure that activity keeps on running and that safety is upheld. There is also a vibrant power cruising community with many privately owned powerboats taking to the water each year. With this it is crucial that the people using the powerboats are trained to the highest level, powerboat instructors and trainers are always needed. For more information about how to become a powerboat instructor or trainer please contact the Coach Education Development Manager.
This annual conference held towards the beginning of each year is a great opportunity to meet the RYA Scotland team, keep up to date with the latest news within instructing for both centres and sailing clubs. It is also a day full of CPD workshops with great learning opportunities to those new and old to instructing.
Club Visit Days – CPD
We hope to make CPD more accessible and cheaper for the volunteer
coaches by visiting active clubs and running single day CPD programmes
specifically targeted to the needs of the club. These clubs will be identified
by them expressing an interest in hosting a day or by the RDOs who will advise
on what the clubs needs are. These can also be organised by a group of clubs if
they wish to host a day for all their local coaches or instructors.
