An ISAF NominatedExpert will use the ISAF Learn to Sail Training Programme as a master reference but will of course take into consideration the specific local, cultural and geographical conditions and resultant objectives of each MNA National Sail Training Programme (NTP).
ISAF Recognized Training Accreditation can benefit an MNA for the following reasons:
1. Funding: Other than for elite athlete development (Olympics) Government funding for sport development will often only be provided to sports that have an independently recognised sport delivery program. ISAF provides such recognition. This particularly applies to new and emerging nations which ISAF needs to attract.
2. Safety: Other than for elite athlete development (Olympics) Government funding for sport development will often only be provided to sports that have an independently recognised sport delivery program. ISAF provides such recognition. This particularly applies to new and emerging nations which ISAF needs to attract.
3. Vlue of awards: Recognition implies a high standard of best practice supported by the use of the ISAF brand. This in turn means that training awards have an international value to those they are awarded to, both students and coaches.
4. Continual access to 'best practice': 'Recognition' is joining the ISAF Training Family and provides constant access to shared information about improvements in equipment, changes to standards and the latest training techniques.
5. Maintenance of high quality standards: Recognition is a rolling process involving periodic re assessment thus ensuring continuity of high standards
Use the 'Learn to Sail' menu from the drop down link above to find out how to get Accreditation and to find out more about the Member National Authorities who have already completed the Accreditation process.
The accreditation programme is envisaged as a progressive and continuous process.
For MNAs wishing to undergo the Inspection for ISAF Recognized Training status but who are in need of guidance on the 'level' of their current programme, ISAF is able to fully fund a maximum of three Training Review visits per year. The ISAF Nominated Expert will visit your MNA and help you to complete an audit of all criteria covered in the official accreditation guidelines in order to offer advice for further development (if needed) or to confirm that the programme is ready for full inspection.
Applicants for this are considered on a case by case basis and all enquiries should be made to the ISAF Training and Development Department.
