The PYA will accredit individuals to become PYA GUEST© Approved Trainers.
As an independent PYA GUEST© Approved Trainer you may apply to teach under any of the PYA GUEST© approved Training Providers worldwide.
Part of the PYA GUEST© approval requires potential instructors to hold the appropriate qualifications, experience and endorsements, as listed in the Trainer Requirements Document.
For PYA to approve an individual Trainer or a Trainer part of a Training Centre, the trainer is required to complete an application form and provide a current CV with photo, letters of reference, qualifications held appropriate to the level being taught and a relevant teaching certificate.
Trainers will be responsible for producing their own course notes and lesson plans which have to be endorsed. All training is to be completed in English, so approved trainers must have a good working knowledge of the written and spoken English language.
The PYA encourages Trainers to keep up to date with CPD and relevant training. In addition, the PYA provides annual Train the Trainers sessions as part of the approval and support.
If you would like to apply for PYA GUEST© Trainers approval, please complete the approval form.
All instructor requirements are at the discretion of the Professional Yachting Association.
