Activity Highlights:

This course will run on various dates from March-June 2024.

This course is designed for people whose main focus is to deliver paddlesport taster/starter sessions and short journeys in very sheltered water environments.

This 2-day course helps to prepare candidates for their first paddlesport instructing role, ensuring they are ‘primed and ready’ to deliver taster sessions for people new to Paddlesport.

Personal Paddling and Rescue Competence

Candidates will choose to paddle one type* of stable craft for the personal paddling and rescue skills assessment.

*Kayak (closed or open cockpit), sit on top, open canoe, or stand up paddleboard.

The Paddlesport Instructor Course Guide and Assessment Guidance provide specific information about the required standard. Please note that this is an assessment course as there isn’t time for training during the course.

The Paddlesport Instructor course has been designed on the premise that the candidate has the required personal and rescue skills prior to course attendance. These components are assessed (but not trained) during the course.

It is not in the best interests of the candidate to attend the course without meeting these standards.

If a candidate does not complete an element required for certification by the end of the assessment course, there are two potential outcomes:

In most circumstances the candidate would be required to repeat all aspects of assessment on a future course.
Alternatively, the candidate can work with the same provider to conclude the assessment components; with the assessor providing further opportunity for the candidate to demonstrate competence in the specific element/s as required. If this option is chosen, it must be concluded within 2 months.

All our courses are delivered by coaches who are extremely active in the sport. We believe that in order to coach well we must work hard to stay at the forefront of the sport. This means that we can give you the most up to date paddling tips. We understand what we do and coach technical and tactical solutions that work in the environment they are supposed to.

Equipment

On our course you will have the opportunity to use some of our excellent fleet of boats, including a very up to date collection of Dagger river boats and well set up Royalex canoes.
