/ The Start Of Your New Career - as an Instructor
If you would like to develop a career in the outdoors, our new fast track training programme could provide the ideal launch pad.
Over an intensive four-month training period you will work towards a clutch of National Governing Body Awards, gathering a huge amount of experience and developing your personal skills.

Yes- it is a question of return on investment.
However, consider that it is considerably cheaper than getting a degree in media studies, and also that it might have additional benefits (for example 'fun' or 'fresh air') than a career in law.
For £9000 you could do your level 1, Offshore survival and medical, and NDT tickets/ rigging course/training as a painter . The expected wage would be between 35-60K , offer worldwide travel and involve 6 months work a year (2 on 2 off).
The food is the same as school as well.
Its about job satisfaction!!!
i started off as an apprentice engineer 22 years ago and it just wasnt for me, i would be on a fantastic wage by now had i have stuck it out.
i joined the army and have enjoyed every minute of it even when i was on approx 9k per year.
I will have a nice pention when i leave the army in three years so will be looking at a career as an instructor, again for job satisfaction, its not a job you do because you want to live in a mantion or drive a ferrari.
I have even emailed PYB in the past to look at the prospect of being a centre assisant for the season when i leave, i heard nothing back, even a get back to us nearer the time, which i thought was quite rude, so ill definitely be taking my money else where.
So to clarify; you want £10k and state 'work towards' - sounds like there is more money to find to turn the 'huge amount of experience' into an actual qual. Why not be more to the point and state the exact figure it will cost to achieve said awards.
i spoke to them a few years ago at the outdoor show, they actually guarantee sweet FA.
SO!!! if you and complete novice in all things outdoor, youre just chucking 10k to PYB for a few courses lol, when i first looked then this cse was about £6000 i cant see where the extra 3k has come from??
i much prefer getting paid AND getting NGB's working where i do now myself!
Enjoyed every minute? Really?? you must have stagged on at some point in that long career....
The problem is there are so many 'instructors' been churned out, all that is left is for the instructors to train more instructors,and the fast track scheme is little more than buying a dream with not much of a chance of finding work at the end.
Nope, it's not unpaid, it's paid :D
I am interested to know or find out if anyone has done thhis course and if so was it worth while? While i do think it looks good it does look like a hell of a lot of money for only a few months.
