US Sailing Level 1 Small Boat Instructor Course


Become a US Sailing Level 1 Small Boat Instructor!

US Sailing has converted their certification program (usually 40 hours over 4 days) into two sections because of COVID-19: a guided online portion for 10 days, followed by an in-person evaluation for 2 days.

Topics include: classroom and on-the-water teaching techniques, risk management, safety issues, lesson planning, creative activities, ethical concerns, and sports physiology and psychology.

Complement your Level 1 training and certification with our Safe Powerboat Handling, Accelerated Safe Powerboat Handling, Powerboat Safety & Rescue and Boat Handling Practice Day.
