One reason why RYA schools have a good reputation is that they are all inspected on an annual basis. The boats and safety equipment are checked, as are the instructors’ qualifications and feedback forms from students.
This year will be particularly important for us as we have applied for recognition to run Powerboat courses as well as Sail Cruising courses. Hopefully from the end of June we will be able to teach the RYA Powerboat I and II syllabus and to issue certificates to successful candidates.
I will write more about these courses and report on how the inspection goes.
