Instructor/Assessors can optionally give students endorsements as the student progresses. These are called Broad Skills Endorsements. They communicate various strengths demonstrated by the student throughout their journey toward competence. These are ONLY the 4 listed below. These are designed to give specific milestones to a student’s growth, training, and certification.
Basic Sailing Skills and Catamaran Endorsements have mandatory rubrics
Basic Skippering Skills and Near Coastal are at the discretion of the Instructor/Assessor to award
