For experienced RYA Keelboat Instructors who will be managing larger fleets or managing several courses at once; this is the minimum qualification required by an RYA Chief Instructor. Professional Keelboat Instructors should aim to attain at least this qualification if they wish to progress within the industry. Larger training centres always have several Senior Instructors, whilst smaller centres and clubs still need at least one RYA Senior Instructor to maintain their RYA recognition. The Senior Instructor qualification will instantly make you more employable.

If you are also an existing Dinghy, Multihull or Windsurf Instructor, passing this course will automatically qualify you as a Senior Instructor in these disciplines, as well.
