May 2-6 Sea Kayak Guide Training, http://www.seacliffkayakers.com/Leadership.html

Sea Training Overview:

The Sea Cliff Kayakers Sea Kayak Guide Training is an intensive 5-day program designed for committed sea kayak enthusiasts, instructors, outdoor professionals or current guides wishing to develop or enhance the technique and skills required to lead groups in dynamic and complex open water coastal environments. The training will focus on the individual needs of each participant, developing and refining their personal paddling skills, instructional tactics, seamanship, rescues, leadership and decision making. The course is a blend of land based workshops and on-water practical sessions; since our goal is to develop guides who are proficient in a variety of sea states the schedule will be dynamic and we will be accessing a variety of on-water venues. The majority of on-water sessions will be scenario driven and taught in the context of skills development tours, where participants will function as the instructor/guide. Participants will have ample opportunity for self assessment in addition to instructor and peer feedback. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to assess for both/either BCU Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning Course and/or ACA Coastal Kayak Trip Leader Award.

This year, Carl Ladd from Osprey Sea Kayak will be co-instructing the course, http://www.ospreyseakayak.com/.
