Develop the skills and experiences to enable you to deliver Level 2 Skills. We will work on your skills sets to ensure that your strokes are of a high demonstration quality. But moreover, we’ll provide lots of tips and techniques to coach other paddlers to higher proficiency. We’ll spend time working on tricks and strategies for teaching weather, navigation and work through evaluation techniques. A fun, challenging and fulfilling course, you’ll learn a lot about your own teaching and be exposed to a variety of teaching methods.

This is a high level course that requires 2 senior Instructor Trainers to assess participants regardless of the numbers in the course. Hence, the upfront costs are higher and difficult to manage. Accordingly, we are establishing a sliding scale to ensure that at a minimum, David and Greg are covering their basic costs.
