Recertification for all CANSail instructors and coaches must be completed through BC Sailing. The certification period for CANSail dinghy instructors and coaches is 36 months to the end of the calendar year. For example, if you completed your clinic in May 2020, your level would expire on December 31, 2023.
All instructors and coaches must complete professional development every three years. The points required vary depending on your training or certification level. More information about professional development points is on the Sail Canada website.
Professional development courses are taught by expert learning facilitators and are for instructors and coaches wishing to learn more about different boats and age groups. These courses are open to all coaches and program directors, including first-year instructors.
Course fees are fully refundable until 14 days prior to the course. Within 14 days of the course start date, cancellations are subject to a $50 cancellation fee.
