This is one of the entry-level Instructor Development standards for sailors wishing to deliver Sail Canada practical on-water training in keelboats. Candidates successfully completing this accreditation and registering with Sail Canada will be certified to deliver training leading to Basic Cruising, Basic Crew, Start Keelboat Sailing and Introduction to Boating (Sail) standards and will be authorized to teach and examine for the Pleasure Craft Operator card. This clinic, leading to the Basic Cruising Instructor Standard focuses on developing coaching and instructional skills appropriate to the delivery of entry-level sail training and skipper skill and knowledge development. Candidate sailing, seamanship and boating skills will be evaluated as part of this clinic. This training is not intended to develop candidate sailing or boating skills. Candidates attending this clinic should be confident in their sailing skills and be able to consistently demonstrate skills at a Basic Cruising level. During the clinic, candidates will be coached on the development and delivery of lessons on water, at the dock and in the classroom. Sessions on curriculum planning and selection of content appropriate for this level of sail training, as well as the desired approach to student evaluation, will be incorporated into the activities that are part of this clinic. In addition to the materials provided by the Basic Cruising Instructors Resource Book and Candidate Workbook, there will be sessions led by the Instructor Evaluators (IEs) on teaching methods and techniques.
