Keelboat Instructor Fast-Track Foundation Module
Build a bespoke Fast-Track programme at Stormforce Coaching using our unique system. Select a foundation module and follow up with the necessary Level 2 and Level 3 modules to Fast-Track your way to achieving your goal. This foundation module can lead onto any of the Level 2 modules, including Coastal Sail Skipper, Coastal Motor Skipper or Sports Boat Instructor, depending on your end objectives. The level 2 module you select will determine the rest of your course; go on to either the Offshore Sail or Offshore Motor Skipper programmes. Either will lead on to the Level 4 Ocean Skipper module.
This Fast-Track programme is designed for those seeking to become an RYA Keelboat Instructor in a short period of time. Aimed at those with a basic experience of Keelboat and/or Dinghy sailing, this five week module will take you through all of the Intermediate and Advanced training courses you will need in order to become an RYA Keelboat Instructor. The package also includes the Day Skipper Shorebased and Practical courses (navigation), which can be commercially endorsed.
Should your aim be to qualify as a Keelboat Instructor, your training will conclude after five weeks. However, should you wish to gain further qualifications, this package can be used as a foundation module to precede any of the Level 2, 3 or 4 Fast-Track modules.
The Keelboat Instructor Fast-Track Foundation Module takes five weeks.
