It's been a busy few weeks at Horizon Watersports. We currently have a windsurf instructor course and a multi activity course running alongside each other. These courses are both fantastic, you are able to book a place even if you have had no previous watersports experience.
The multi activity course is 3 fun packed weeks of all kinds of different sports. They have started off by completing their start windsurf qualification and after this will move on to gaining dinghy sailing qualifications, a first aid certificate and personal skills to help them find jobs in the industry after they leave.
Our windsurf instructor course is a 5 week course. Here are some wise words from our guys on the course right now;
“To anyone considering doing a course at Horizon I couldn’t recommend it enough, the staff are so friendly and the tuition is great”
“Windsurfing, sun and great people, I couldn’t ask for more”
“I think I have found my perfect job path, and thanks to Horizon I’m finally on my way”
All our courses have been subsidised by all the generous public donations we receive. We are even able to offer some places for free.
So what do all our students hope to do after their courses?
Our past trainees have been successful in finding work after completing their courses. In the past we have had people go to Portugal, Dubai, Turkey, Greece, the UK and even had a few stay right here in Nidri to join our little team.
Here are a few ideas of what our current trainees want to do in the future after completing their course;
“When I’m older I want to open my own centre with great wind and sun everyday”
“I want to take my skills to Australia for the winter to keep practicing my teaching, chasing the sun all year”
“As long as I’m teaching I’ll be happy wherever I end up”
What’s next on the students agenda?
Well in a few days we will have all our trainees take part in gaining an RYA certified first aid certificate and powerboat driving certificates. There is only 1 week left now and we will be sad to see them go but we are already proud of all they have achieved.
As the season is pulling to a close we only have one more windsurf instructor course left to run. This will be starting on October 4th so if anyone reading this is interested and would like some more information about booking yourself a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are only 2 places left so book your place before this amazing opportunity passes you by!
