The Assistant Instructor Award (AL) provides recognition for the ‘in-house’ training given to experienced windsurfers intending to qualify as RYA windsurfing instructors. The AL is a competent intermediate non-planing sailor, who has been trained to assist instructors in teaching windsurfing up to the standard of Youth Stage 1 and Adult Start Windsurfing courses. They must work under the supervision of an RYA Senior Instructor (SI).

Candidates must hold the RYA Windsurfing Scheme intermediate non-planing certificate and have the recommendation of their centre’s Principal.

RYA Start Windsurfing Instructors are qualified to teach the Start Windsurfing course and Stages 1 and 2 of the Youth Windsurfing Scheme under the supervision of a Senior Instructor.
