RYA POWERBOAT & PERSONAL WATERCRAFT INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

Looking to advance your watersports skills and employment opportunities? The Super Yacht and Marine industry always need instructors to train clients. This could be on a yacht where you are looking after the watersports department. Rules and regulations are in place and Superyachts need to comply. This means operators of Powerboats (Tenders) and PWC (Jet Skis) must have training and certificates.

This is where you come in as a qualified RYA Powerboat Instructor and or RYA Personal Water Craft (PWC Jet Ski) Instructor. You can train and issue certificates from a recognized training School. This could be day work from a school based in the marina or on a Super Yacht.

Here in Cape Town, we use instructors all the time for our courses. These can be Deckhand or stewardess career courses or individual requests for Powerboat or PWC Jet Ski Training. As well as the RYA certificate our courses are also recognized Internationally. We are the leading professional training academy in South Africa. The local SAMSA Skippers license courses and exams are very popular and allow our clients to use vessels in South African waters.
