Fast Track Intensive SUP Instructor Course



Kickstart your career in the outdoors. Our fast track course is ideal if you’d like to get a range of SUP experience, hone your technique and gain a recognised qualification this winter. Set over two weeks, this course is perfect for career changers, school leavers or existing paddlers looking to upskill ahead of the summer season. 

Using a range of venues in the South West (rivers, lakes and coast) you’ll work in a small group with our senior instructors. We’ll break down paddling, leadership & coaching skills, providing personal feedback on your progress throughout the course. During the two weeks you’ll complete a 16-hour outdoor first aid certificate, your WSA Safety and Rescue and Foundation SUP Instructor training courses; and the course will culminate with a formal assessment. You’ll leave with not just an HSE recognised qualification, but with the skills and experience to allow you to teach paddleboarding UK-wide.
