This course is for the instructor who has already completed their Level 2 instructor training in New Zealand (by doing a SurfingNZ/ISA/NZSUP instructor course in the last 5 years that went beyond purely beginner-based lessons), and is wanting to renew their qualification. If you have a SUP Instructor qualification from outside of NZ and are looking to convert to the NZ system then please check out the conversion course.
Level 2 SUP instruction is about teaching progressors – those who have done a beginner lesson (or self taught) and are looking to gain skills above and beyond complete beginner level. It can be thought of as “lessons 2, 3 4, etc.” Topics include improved turning skills, stances and improving paddling technique.
To hold a current Level 2 qualification you must also hold a current Level 1 qualification, as this covers essentials such as up to date first aid, safety knowledge, etc. If you have not yet renewed your L1 qualification please do this first.
The Level 2 renewal process can be completed entirely online via this course. If you choose to work through every lesson it will take around 4 hours. If you choose to work through the minimum required it will take about half that.
The process consists of the following steps:
- Work through the online lessons contained in this course, covering material that has either changed since your last course, or qualifies as essential revision.
- Complete and pass the online test at the end of the course, so you can be sure that you are current in your required knowledge for instructing SUP at beyond beginner level.
Some of the lessons here are optional, others essential. We strongly recommend viewing them all. However, as with all the online courses here, you can log in and work through any of the lessons any time, however often you want.
So without further ado, let’s make a start…
