Revalidate or upgrade your qualification

Revalidating or upgrading qualifications is a necessary step for Yachting New Zealand to make sure coaches are aware of current best-practice and continually upskilling with new coaching techniques.

There is always something new to be learnt and new approaches to consider in our sport.

Your coaching qualifications expire every four years.

Learn to sail (all types) and keelboat coaches
