Instructor Development

Event Phone: (281) 451-1146

This class covers the Instructor Development course.

It will be taught on the listed schedule, but the class and instructor may make changes.  The course has been designed to demonstrate interactive teaching methods focused on adult learning.  Students are required to prepare lesson plans and give three presentations to their peers utilizing a variety of teaching aids and presentation skills.

The course focuses on how to teach adults using a modern, interactive and fun approach to learning.  Students who complete the course will become certified US Power Squadron instructors prepared to teach our boating classes.  It is an easy way for members to ‘break the ice’ and overcome any inhibitions or anxieties they may have toward teaching, and the squadrons will have more qualified members willing to teach our courses.

The certification will be valid for four years. Certification may be renewed for another four-year term by attending a recertification seminar.  This course is required by the State of Texas for anyone in the Squadron teaching the ABC3 boater safety course.

This course if for members who want to teach, but it will be offered to Sea Scouts if requested to enhance their presentation education and skills.  Snacks and beverages will be provided.
