In order to be accepted for keelboat instructor training, all candidates must first pass a practical assessment conducted by an RYA coach/examiner. The assessment will confirm your ability to sail at all times with an awareness of the 'five essentials', as well as in a controlled and confident manner. The test serves as a filter, as there is no time on the instructor training course for candidates to be taught how to sail at the required standard.

Further information on the required standard required is in the G14 National Sailing Scheme Instructor Handbook.
