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?

5 YEARS EXPERIENCE or 1 year if working on boats is your living
cost of the course varies from school to school but around 250/ 300

Freelancing can be as and when but mostly weekends and it don't pay alot
around 75 to 120 a day again depends on the school

I have just got my PBI from Dave Hickman, I have my first aid, sea survival, SRC. ICC, level 2, advanced and Powerboat Insructor Certificates.
I am currently at Exeter University, so I am pretty flexiable with hours and need very little notice. I am based in the South West, but can travel anywhere, where needed. I haven't taught any lessons yet, but hope to soon.
