Teaching RYA Training Courses

Teaching the RYA's courses can be a rewarding, challenging and fun career or hobby. The strength of the RYA's world famous training programmes is dependent upon the quality of its instructors, coaches and trainers.

Cruising & Yachtmaster Instructors
The first step in teaching within the RYA scheme is to become qualified as a Cruising Instructor, before moving up to the Yachtmaster™ Instructor qualification. Both qualifications can be taken in sail and motor cruisers, and your certificate will be endorsed accordingly.

Prior to any Cruising Instructor training, you will need to be a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster™ Offshore. You must also complete the online pre-course knowledge check, access to this will be arranged by the training centre who will be doing your practical training.

Qualifications, experience, endorsements and other aspects of this information can change on a regular basis - for the very latest information consult:
