It’s at this time of year where there is much demand for the training for Instructors onboard Superyachts. Through the RYA scheme, we can run Personal Watercraft Instructor courses for the crew, thus enabling charter guests to receive the ‘safety course’ and enjoy the watercraft during their stay onboard.
The superyacht must apply for/maintain recognition through the RYA as a training centre, and can apply for the safety certificates to issue for the duration of their guests’ stay.
As a shorebased centre, Aigua Sea School requests permission from the RYA to run an instructor course, adhering to the strict guidelines of the scheme (a minimum of three students, maximum of six, using maximum of three personal watercraft with two students onboard, with instructor trainer in a support vessel). We can train onboard a superyacht or from our recognised training base, Port Adriano, where we have held recognition for a number of years.
This week we ran an instructor course for a lovely Italian crew onboard a superyacht. The complete crew passed with flying colours. We, of course, protect their privacy and will never publicly discuss the name of the yacht, but we can post here the lovely feedback we received from the Captain this morning … “I have been really delighted to run into you and Colin, people extremely experienced and kind. Has been a pleasure for me have worked by side with you to achieve a good result I will recommend your school to all my colleagues in Palma and Barcelona”
It is always so reassuring to know that the service we provide to our clients is worthy of such praise.
So anyway, back to the matter in hand, we are running an ‘open’ instructor course next week, starting on Wednesday 9th May. There are some places available if you’re quick! All instructor candidates must hold the Proficiency course and a First Aid certificate. Both of which can be arranged by the Aigua Team..
Happy Weekend to you all.
