Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Paddlesport - Training

Course Description

The Level 2 Coach is able to plan, deliver and review progressive sessions safely and effectively. This non-discipline-specific training is therefore relevant to coaches who want to coach any paddlesport craft. The Level 2 Coach can work without supervision and is able to offer guidance and support to the Level 1 Coach.

The Level 2 Coach training is a four day course. The course may be four consecutive days, or split over two weekends, so please check dates carefully when booking. Each day runs 9am – 5pm.

Level 2 Transfer Course
Coaches who hold a Coaching qualification prior to 2007, and who hold the relevant pre-requisites, can achieve the Level 2 Certificate via the Transfer route. This is effectively a shortened training course for the new qualification.
