Get more from your watersport instructor course

Most watersport instructor courses assume or require some basic knowledge of sailing, though all will be able to provide an introduction in order to get you up to speed, should you be a complete beginner. Courses can last from a few weeks to several months, and usually include a range of different watersports, though the ability to specialise is often available if you ask.

Watersports may include BCU/UKCC canoeing or kayaking, RYA Dinghy Sailing and Windsurfing, and the growth sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding. The more comprehensive instructor training courses will include enough to allow you to begin a career in any one of two or three different watersports

Check what is included in your price as some courses include more than you may imagine. As well as professional training and access to top of the range kit, you may also get meals and accommodation included, as well as access to leisure facilities during your free time.

We include a simple form on the full courses details page so that you can make further enquiries to the watersport course provider. One thing to ask would be the level of job seeking support they can offer you during and following your course. Some watersport centres have strong links with employers and may be able to get you an interview. If you are good enough, you may even find employment with your course provider!
