Level 1 Instructor Training Details and Benefits of Certification

Dates:   May 26,27,28,29 2017


Level One Certification is mandatory training for anyone interested in any kind of employment at the US Sailing Center (as in Summer Camp or any other sailing program). The benefits of this training are many.  Most important, it provides a standardize approach to sailing instruction so that when the USSCMC provides instruction, all Sailing Instructors will be teaching from the same doctrine of sailing. There is also an insurance policy for those who are Level 1-trained instructors. For those who have no professional aspirations for sailing, the training builds sailing confidence and makes you a far more qualified sailing volunteer.  Additional benefits to USSCMC members who have an active US Sailing Level One Instructor Certificate on file with the employment office of the USSCMC include the following…

  • Opportunities to run start up sailing programs with the USSCMC
  • Opportunities for a part time income
  • Opportunities to sail beyond our sailing area, by simply filing a sailing plan and obtaining permission from the Sailing Director
  • Opportunities to sail at times when the USSCMC is typically closed

The course fee is $370 when registered 4+ weeks early.  At a minimum you must be age 16 in the year 2017 to enroll in this course.  Those turning 16 years old in 2017 will most likely have to contact US SAILING by phone 800-877-2451. To be employed at the USSCMC you must be a minimum age 16 (at the time of employment) and have passed the level one instructor training program.  Completing your Level 1 Training does not guarantee a Summer Camp paid instructor position or any sailing employment at the USSCMC, but it does guarantee that you have the base requirement to be employed at the USSCMC and at many other sailing facilities and sailing camps around the nation.
