jet ski instructor course?

I know this is rib.net

Since i completed my advanced commercial and my pbi, I want to now do my jet ski instructors possibly in the next couple of months, i was just wondering if the are any courses that are going in the very near future, i have my own jet ski to do it on if that helps.

cheers in advance Greg Butler.

Greg

We run these pretty regularly. We qualified over 100 candidates last year.

Bit late now but we are a day into a 3/4 day course this week. That said you only need to do a one day Proficiency Course followed a one day endorsement course as you are an existing PBI.

We would not need you to tow your ski down to Southampton as we own a couple and have easy access to a few more.

Drop me an email and I will send back some dates. Do weekdays work for you?
