To enable you to gain your qualifications you must become a member of the RYA and BC, and there is a small fee payable to those organisations directly once you have completed your training.
The watersports/outdoors industry is crying out for new instructors so many uk operators are now offering their own instructor training courses. The only problem is they are in the UK, in the Winter! So, why not join our fast-track watersports instructor training course in the Mediterranean sunshine and begin an incredible journey to a new career.
Our comprehensive Watersports Instructor Training course will train you to become a Dinghy Sailing, Kayaking & Stand Up Paddleboarding Instructor, with the option to add Windsurf Instructor should you complete a season with us after the course. You will also gain your Powerboat Level 2 and Safety Boat qualifications along with many other industry-specific qualifications and workshops.
Our training facility is based in Argelès-sur-Mer, in the south of France, with the Mediterranean Coast and Pyrenees mountains all on your doorstep. Not only will you receive an incredible training programme but you will also experience new cultures and have the opportunity to try a huge amount of other adventure sports. Our training course includes a day trip to Barcelona (only 2 hours away) and the opportunity to try wakeboarding, mountain biking, white water rafting, canyoning, and, if it’s been a good season, there will be the opportunity to Ski/Snowboard.

"Laboro quod lascivio unus (Work and play are as one)"
We like this philosophy here at Voyager. A philosophy that was first recorded by François-René de Chateaubriand over 200 years ago:
“Someone in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between their work and their play; their labour and their leisure; their mind and their body; their education and their recreation. They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence through whatever they are doing, and leave others to determine whether they are working or playing. To themselves, they always appear to be doing both.”
Voyager Academy's 6 Week Watersports Instructor Training is approved by the Education and Skills Funding Agency and as trainees, you are eligible for a Professional Career Development Loan. Trainees are not required to pay off this loan until after watersports instructor training course has been completed, however, you will want to take into account that interest rates are relatively high. Another option to fund in part your watersports instructor training course is with a personal loan. One benefit being that personal loans are typically low interest, whilst being required to be paid back within the first few months of lending.
It is worth highlighting that our 6-week watersports instructor training course is exceptionally competitively priced at only £2995, that includes return UK travel, 4* accommodation and most importantly - paid employment on the beaches of France upon completion of the course!
