This program is for committed ocean kayak instructors. Over 5 days we cover how to comprehensively and confidently teach a Level 1 Sea Kayak skills course in the  nationally recognized Paddle Canada Program.  Upon completion you’ll join a group of committed and passionate paddlers across the country. In this instructor course, we build on teaching proficiency and perfect demonstration quality strokes. Lesson planning and safety are the foundations of this course.
