Paddlesport Instructor

Paddlesport Instructor

This combined training and assessment course over 2 days, will enable you to run games and activities to support learning and inspire adventure and exploration for new paddlers in stable craft. On this practical course, you will learn skills such as:

  • Kitting up a group and getting afloat
  • Activities and games to support learning
  • How to use mini journeys to promote exploration of the environment
  • Keeping your group safe

You need to be able to paddle your Canoe, Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard independently on flat water. You will also need to be able to keep yourself and others safe on and near the water, for example a paddler falling off their craft. We find that paddlers that have completed the Paddle Explore Award or with around 70 hours of personal paddling experience can focus on the training and get the most out of their course. A Paddlesport Safety and Rescue course will need to have been attended prior to this course taking place.
