These days, water sports instructors are much more challenged than it was the case a few years ago. Many of the tiny schools that started with only one sport have developed into huge water sport centers, offering windsurfing, kitesurfing, catamaran and dinghy sailing. Thanks to its modularity, the VDWS training system allows for an individual job profile that can be expanded step by step. Further education workshops for school management, advanced level 3 Instructor and internship supervision complete this qualification system.
