#ISA - The Irish Sailing Association’s latest Senior Instructor assimilation course takes place later this month on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 May at Malahide Yacht Club.

The ISA Senior Instructor Assimilation Programme was introduced in 2015 in response to the shortage of qualified Senior Instructors particularly during the peak club junior training programme period.

The aim was to allow those who had previously held a Grade A or SI qualification and with experience in that role, but whose qualifications had lapsed and not been active in that role for some time, to revalidate the qualification.

Eligibility criteria for the €150 course includes one or more of the following:

  • Former ISA/IYA Grade A instructor.
  • ISA Senior instructor lapsed for more than 3 years.
  • Senior Instructor qualification from foreign sailing NGB (RYA, FFV, etc) where valid ISA instructorship is held.
  • Aged over 25 with valid ISA instructor qualification and minimum of 3 years experience in organisation and supervision of sail training activity, to be supported by log and two industry references.

The full criteria are available from the ISA website, where you can also find the course booking form and make payment for the course fee.
