If you have not recently taught courses, you may be required to take the Essentials of Close-Quarters and Open Water Boat Control course, which conforms to the American National Standard for on-water skills as verified through an independent third-party assessment process. The course is taught in a train-the-trainer model. Candidates will demonstrate their ability to teach the following skills: steering straight, stopping, turns up to 180 degree, docking, ferrying, avoidance turns, person overboard and retrieval. Upon successful completion of the course, the candidate becomes a NSBC Instructor that is certified to teach the Boat Control On-Water Training course to students.
A NSBC Instructor must maintain their membership with the NSBC and adhere to the policies and procedures as outlined in the NSBC Instructor Policy Manual.
