Take a look at the course resources which can be found online HERE
Page 19-20 of the course guide found HERE describes the level of personal paddling and rescue skills you should have BEFORE attending the course
If you’re looking to instruct SUP outwith a club or centre, or on lochs, rivers or the sea, then the SUP Coach Awards would be more appropriate qualifications.
This two day course runs with a maximum of 6 participants.
It’s all about how to introduce beginners to SUP in a way that’s fun, safe, and rewarding. During the course we’ll look at practical skills such as kitting up a group and getting afloat, familiarisation activities and games, using mini-journeys to add to the adventure and minimising our environmental impact.
We’ll also look at the personal skills that help us to build relationships and effectively communication with a group of SUP newbies, and the professional standards that will help us to thrive and be an asset to the organisation we’re working for.
During the course your personal paddling and rescue skills will be assessed.
