The club has gained some great members over the last few years, some who were accomplished paddlers when they arrived and others who joined through the beginners program. The next step for these paddlers is taking on leadership roles on club activities and many have already stepped up.

To support the clubs leaders I would like to run some training sessions to build on the other skills that form part of the Paddle Australia’s Qualification Scheme, Guide and Instructor.

 

Check out the link below for more details on the Paddle Australia Guide and Instructor Qualifications for Flatwater, Sea and Whitewater. (https://paddle.org.au/education-safety/education-paqs/#PAQSQualifications).

Check out the Flatwater Instructor and Guide Learners Manual, which is a great resource to start reading before the training.

The plan with the training is to have a couple of theory sessions at the club house to go through the skills in the qualifications above.

Day 1 - 1st Dec 2019 (Planning an Activity + Weather and Environment + Group Communication + Incident management)

Day 2 - 15th Dec 2019 (Equipment Selection, Care and Maintenance + Knots + Navigation)

Who should attend?

Club paddlers who are keen to expand their horizons and lead some club trips or even obtaining a Paddle Australia qualification. Existing instructors who would like to refresh some skills or log some time training other are also welcome.

 

To obtain a qualification through Paddle Australia you are also required to present a log book. There are some great opportunities over the summer to gain some hours guiding or instructing during the beginners program in January and the whitewater beginners in March.
