Before setting out to get certified as an instructor, you might want to know how much money you will make.

There are multiple factors that will affect your income. The biggest will be to find a school that has plenty of students, and is at a location with reliable weather and wind. Both of these are required to ensure that you can teach a reasonable number of hours every day. Some schools might offer a fixed salary, but if they don’t have sufficient bookings or the weather does not allow for lessons every day, the salary will reflect this.

An interview via phone or Skype might seem less intimidating than one in real life. However, it is your biggest chance to showcase your qualifications, skills and achievements, and convince your potential employer that you have the required ability and experience to perform the advertised job.
