WSA Foundation SUP Instructor Training


This is the first step to working as a Stand Up Paddle instructor. This two day course will introduce the novice instructor to teaching and communication skills, lesson planning, feedback and analysis skills and group and individual client management. If you are not sure if you are at standard then please contact us to discuss.

This course is designed to be combined with a WSA SUP Safety and Rescue training course (delivered the day before). The course is both dry and wet in content and is a practical and theoretical course.
