This is a three-day course which begins with cementing your Stand Up Paddleboard skills through teaching you the Paddle Canada Basic as well as the Advanced Stand Up Paddleboard skills on the first day. These courses will most likely be a review for you but you must have the Basic and Advanced Skills certification before taking your Basic Instructor Certification course. This skills day will hone your personal skills before refining the methods to teach them.

Becoming a Paddle Canada Basic Stand Up Paddleboard instructor allows you to teach Paddle Canada insured and certified stand up paddleboard courses anywhere in Canada.

Instructor candidates must be certified with Paddle Canada Advanced Stand Up Paddleboard Skills and strong leadership skills to take this course. We are running the Basic as well as the Advanced Stand up Paddleboard skills ahead of this course, so that all your skills are solid and you have a better understanding of how a Paddle Canada Basic Stand up Paddleboard skills course should run and what it should cover. Our Basic SUP instructor training program takes place at Ontario Sea Kayak Centre with accommodation included onsite.

We can also set-up private courses for groups if you can’t make these dates, please contact us to chat about it.

What You Will Learn

  • You will spend your time learning about teaching and learning styles. We will also practice teaching theory and practical skills in the classroom and on the water.
