This course really made me reflect on how these tools apply to sailing instruction, and life in general. The main takeaway is the incredibly powerful concept of teaching a sailing class in the context of not just "learning how to sail", but by creating a competent, empowerment-centric team on a sailboat, you've got a positive formula for successful, safe, and enjoyable sailing.

As an ex-army officer, I can recognize the terminology and theory behind the presented concepts.

This course was super. Instructors had soo much experience. I really learned a lot and enjoyed the material.
Hi, and thanks for joining in to be part of the NauticEd frontline team. Below is an introduction video to The Transformational Instructor training program. This course is designed to give you the tools and skills to be an exceptional team leader, team manager, and team follower, and to help you identify which role you need to be in at the appropriate times.
As you saw in the introduction video, we at NauticEd have a very serious committment to not only sailing and boating in of itself but to industry instructor training. We beleive that you are the front lines to making sailing and boating an enjoyable recreational activity. That enjoyment comes from the leadership training and people management training you are about to receive. As you'll learn from Commander Larry Yatch and Lt. Col Edward O'Connor, you're not only charged with teaching how to sail but you will be also be teaching how to be a good skipper of a boat. With that statement, you'll actually be teaching some of the leaderships skills and people management skills presented here. As you know, a good skipper is not just a good sailor but is a good leader.
But first, you'd agree that learning from the absolute best of the best is going to make you personally more effective - so that you show up as the best version of yourself every day - and that nothing will rattle your cage. You'll learn from Ed how to handle each personality type. You'll learn from Larry how to bring it all together as part of a team.
Both Larry and Ed are the best of the best. You don't get to lead a special forces operation without the skills to do the mission and the skills to train for the mission. You don't get to be Top Gun with out the skills to master the vessel and you don't get to train Top Gun pilots with out being the best trainer.
Through this course, NauticEd has made a huge investment in you and the sailing industry. Please then, take your time in going through this course.
This course is not to be knocked out just to tick the "done it" box. This course represents the single largest investment any company has ever made in proper professional sailing and boating instructor training. Please take the time to watch the videos all the way through with your fullest attention - this is for you!
Just like you want your students to pay attention because of their coming assessment, throughout this course we test your new knowledge and ensure you are paying attention to the videos and material. Again, like a student, the brain pays more attention when it knows there is a coming test.
Please enjoy the course and come back often to review.

Great books and system you have. By the way - I managed to dock our 30ft sailboat in the Mediterranean for the first time, just by taking your maneuvering course and then practicing using your techniques for an hour outside the port before docking.
