Step 5: Instructor Training
The IIT program is an intensive job-training program designed to take young sailors from student to instructor during an eight-week summer session. Full completion of the IIT program typically takes two summers. This program will help you master your sailing skills, build your confidence on the water and as a leader, bring together you and your peers as a formidable sailing instruction team. The IIT program will also prepare you for the industry-standard US Sailing Level 1 instructor certification course by introducing you to some basic instruction techniques and giving you the opportunity to apply them by helping to teach the Courageous Step 1/2 Programs at all three of our sites!
