Flying Fish
The first two weeks provide intensive foundation training. You'll learn how to sail effectively, and deliver essential courses in first aid and rescue boat driving. The middle two weeks are the core of the skill-building programme. You sail under the guidance of expert coaches who guarantee to improve your performance on the water. The final two weeks are devoted to instructor training and assessment. You will develop an imaginative approach to teaching safe and efficient sailing, as well as the theory that underlies it. You'll have time to learn and practise the necessary teaching techniques before being examined. After you've qualified, you get help into a job. Thousands of jobs in sailing, diving, surfing, windsurfing, skiing and snowboarding are advertised on the Flying Fish website every year - and your free membership of the Flying Fish online recruitment service means you get to hear about them first. You have a fantastic choice of warm water training locations to train in – Vassiliki in Greece or Sydney in Australia. During your time off you can go windsurfing, mountain biking and diving.
