SAILING INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION
The Community Boating Center at SBJSA offers US Sailing (USSA) Instructor certification courses on an almost annual basis. In order for our instructors to be nationally certified and insured for sailing instruction, we require US Sailing Level 1 certification in order to be employed as a paid staff member. Because of our facilities and fleet, we often host the Level 1 certification course in our area, which is attended by many regional instructors and camp counselors and taught by a certified USSA Instructor-Trainor. Courses are usually held in the spring and can be presented over either one or two weekends for student flexibility. Total course length is typically 3-4 days.
In 2020, SBJSA is hosting a Level 1 course, June 5-7. In addition, Rochester YC is hosting a Level 1 course on May 17-20. Classes usually fill up quickly and there is a maximum class size, so please register soon!
Go to the US Sailing website (ussa.org) to see the courses available and register on-line. The USSA website is the only way to register and pay for the course.
