Become an instructor
You may wish to become an Assistant Instructor or Dinghy Instructor. WaveRides prefer prospective AI's to be 14 or older. DI's must be 16 or over. Both qualifications are open to youngsters and adults. AI's are trained by each RYA Centre and the award certificate is specific to that training centre. AI's who wish to join another Centre may have to join a new training course specific to that Centre to become qualified. On the other hand DI's must pass a pre - assessment day and then successfully complete a 5 day course to qualify. Unlike an AI the DI qualification can be used at any RYA training Centre subject to whether the certificate is endorsed for coastal or inland. For more information speak to Hugh.
