Receiving of the licence:

To obtain the licence, the participation in a VDWS advanced training course is necessary at least every 3 years, as well as the proof of 10 basic licence licences per year.

The internship is part of the VDWS instructor training. Prerequisite for admission is the successful participation in the training course, the passing of the teaching test and the membership in the VDWS.

The internship lasts at least 21 days or 100 hours and should mainly consist of teaching activities under supervision of the instructor. It should be completed within one season and if possible without interruption.

The trainee will keep a report booklet on the contents of the internship, which will be handed out and discussed during the course. The exact procedure of the internship and all formalities are described in the internship booklet.

Registration must take place before the beginning of the internship. Internships which are not registered will not be recognised. The licence certificate will only be issued after the internship has been successfully completed.

Internship school:

An internship can only be completed at a VDWS-school "entitled to do an internship". Interns are supervised by a teacher with a valid internship licence.

The choice of the internship place is made by the applicant independently. Early contact with the school and the responsible trainer is recommended. The agreement on working hours, remuneration and other benefits will be arranged with the water sports school. For the time of the internship, the interns are to be granted an appropriate remuneration.

If a second training licence is acquired, a further internship is waived if at least 6 months of professional experience can be proven with the first licence.

VDWS-watersport assistants, who complete the internship at the same training school, can have the internship reduced by up to 50% (50 hours). If the internship takes place at a foreign school, it can be reduced by 20% (80 hrs.)
