Hi Jon, Give me a shout, Southampton is not that far from you really! Professional Powerboat Training Southampton is running full tilt. Just completed a Level 2 with two boats out today, another starting tomorrow and then again on Monday. I'm building an instructor bank as I need a day off!!

Hi Guy's,

Very Intersting Reading. I have now completed my PB level 1 & 2 + Advanced plus Day Skipper theroy I also have VHF with DSC.

Other qualifications include Advanced Open Water Diver (PADI).

What would be my next move towards my instructors/commercial ticket and post qualification experience?

For those of you already in the business, is it possible to make a living out of teaching?

All thoughts greatfully recieved. Answers can be submitted via a PM.

Cheers

It appears you have the relevant experience to now do your Instructors Ticket
so go for it .
As regards Making a living yep you can , but it takes time to get established 3 to 5 years the capital outlay is huge . Some people do it on a casual basis ie weekend courses other do it full time , you may be better off doing freelance work to begin with ,as this will build your teaching experience and knowledge base and then you can decide if its worth taking the plunge and doing it full time. There are new schools opening up every week so the competion is quite high and more and more schools are offering a broad range of courses to supplement the Powerboat tuition so they offer a one stop shop for all the courses that will be of interest to potential clients. Hope this helps

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your comments. A couple more questions please.

What sort of costs would be involved for an instructors course & what equipment/skills would I need before hand?

Freelancing sounds like a good option, am i right in assumming it would be working most w/ends?

Thanks
