Students will be evaluated on their teaching ability, sailing skills, powerboat handling skills and on-water class management, among other topics. 

- An Online, 10-day, guided section is a prerequisite for the In-person Evaluation. The total time commitment is approximately 10-12 hours. During this section candidates must complete video modules with assessment questions, online testing and attend multiple webinars. Instructor Trainers (ITs) will present material to Instructor Candidates (ICs) during some of the webinars, and ICs will be expected to present to the IT, and the rest of the class, during the other webinar.

The US Sailing Small Boat Level 3 Head Instructor Certification Course, is designed to support sailing instructors and program managers who are either making the transition to a leadership role in their programs or growing their management skills in their current role. This course is also available for parents and volunteers who want to better manage their sailing programs but do not want or need to receive a certification.

This course contains information on how to manage more effectively, problem solve, continue to create a quality learning environment for their students and sailing staff, and where to find additional resources. Topics covered in the course include: classroom and on-the-water teaching techniques, risk management, safety issues, curriculum planning, advanced team building techniques, ethical concerns, and much more. 

The online course is spread over ten days (Fridays are Day 1 and Sunday is Day 10). The course consists of five 40-minute live webinars and includes short presentations. The other days are self-paced and consist of video content, group discussion and posts, assignments, quizzes and a final test. Students should expect to spend 20 hours on course work over the ten days.
