Classroom or Home study - the choice is yours!

Classroom

The 8 session classroom course is run only during the fall and winter sesaons. We will organize a course at other times if there is enough demand. There is lots of hands-on examples and graduates are encouraged to sign up for some on-the-water practice during the season.

Home study

For the home study format you get all the same material and coaching you just do not attend the classroom sessions. It is recommended that you take no more than three months but it is up to you to decide. Take as much time as you need to complete the course at your own pace but the coaching element is only valid for 6 months.
