The course is classroom based, and presented in an interactive way, giving you examples and scenarios to work with in order to make it as interesting as possible and maximise your learning. You’ll get some good information to take away, as well.
The course fee will depend on the local presenter (as some have support from local councils etc in order to run them FOC, while others have to recoup costs for renting rooms etc), but should not be more than $40 per person. A small outlay in return for knowledge that may save your life!
Check out also the SUP RESCUE course. With the skills you will learn in this 2.5 hour course, you will be equipped to save someone from drowning. It’s a vital skill that every stand up paddleboarder should have. Unfortunately, preventable drowning incidents are all too common around the New Zealand waters, and you never know when you might come across someone in trouble.
FIND A COURSE
There will be courses run all over New Zealand throughout the summer. Courses will be scheduled, and/or on demand – if there are enough takers then the local course presenter will put one on. Contact your local presenter to put your name on their list!
Where the course presenter is shown as TBA, this is because the training is still under way. If you would be interested in a course in this area please let us know, and you will be contacted as soon as the presenters are ready to begin running the course.
More presenters will be added to this list very soon. If there is not a presenter in your area please contact us to request a course and we’ll see what we can do.
