Windsurf Instructor Training
Jim has been actively training beginner through to advanced instructors for the RYA national adult windsurfing scheme since 2001 in Australia, Europe and the UK both with Flying Fish and independently as a freelance Trainer.
As well as training instructor candidates, Jim has also started selecting and training prospective Trainers, and alongside this he has been heavily involved in producing, writing and implementing the new RYA national scheme, 'Start', 'Intermediate' and 'Advanced' Windsurfing.
Jimbo, however, has not restricted himself purely to the adult windsurfing scheme, and has also teamed up with "team15", the RYA's junior racing scheme. He is now training up T15 coaches all over the UK. T15 has also decided to go down the freestyle route and Jim has written and is currently delivering this new additition to all those involved in team15.
Jim is available to run instructor training courses, both in the UK and abroad for the adult and junior RYA schemes. Please contact Jim for further details.
As well as this and as a new addition to Jim's instructor training courses, Jim is running instructor 'tuning sessions'. These are courses for instructors who wish to fine tune their coaching skills prior to or following an instructor course at any level and also get some quality personal sailing coaching. Courses can be run in the UK at any RYA Centre or abroad at Club Dahab in Egypt or Club Vass in Greece.
Training for Professionals
Jimbo's courses go beyond the simple provision and honing of teaching and coaching skills for both adults and children.
Students will also come away from a course with heightened safety awareness and standards, refined communication and presentation techniques, good group management skills and a practical understanding of innovative coaching techniques.
Emphasis is also placed on the clarification of students' practical and theoretical windsurf knowledge, a clear understanding of what will be expected of an individual in the windsurf industry as an Instructor, and of course plenty of personal development through individual coaching by Jimbo.
Courses in the UK can be run where required at any RYA recognised Training Centre. If a location is needed then Jim can arrange for courses to take place at West Wittering Beach in West Sussex courtesy of 2XS/X-Train
Courses abroad are available in Europe (Vassiliki in Greece), and further afield (Dahab, Egypt and Sydney, Australia). Courses can either be run courtesy of Flying Fish or independently by Jim at any RYA recognised Training Centre.
All course costs depend on location and level of course.
