Level 1

Level 1 SUP Instructor

This course is for the instructor looking to offer basic how-to SUP beginner lessons or an entry-level SUP experience on a commercial basis in a safe, non-challenging environment.

This is the online learning section of the course, covering the theory, safety understanding and background knowledge to operate safe and productive sessions. There are 24 lessons in this online course, which will take about 11 hours to complete, plus a few extra hours of practice and homework.

To complete the qualification as a Level 1 SUP instructor, the candidate must also complete an assessment session, and show the required level of paddling ability. Information on the assessment and required paddling ability is provided as part of the online learning course here, along with advice on any technique refinements required. There is an additional fee of $150 for the assessment, which can be booked when the candidate feels ready to take it. See the FAQ pages for more information on the assessment process.
