LEVEL 1 KITESURF INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

General

All kitesurf Instructor Training Courses (ITC’s) are run in conjunction with the British Kitesurfing Association (BKSA) and are open to all kitesurfers of a suitable standard of riding proficiency / experience.

The aims have been to produce one recognised instructor training route for kitesurfing in the UK, to standardize the level of this training, to link BKSA training to a world based standard and replace all current licenses with one recognised license only.

The BKSA ITC has been modified to include extra areas of training for the UK. The syllabus forms the core of the course package with further areas that include foil training as well as single skin kites, further safety inputs and the legal and administrative requirements an instructor must be aware of when setting up their own school within the UK. The instructor training has been formulated to be either delivered on a modular bases, which means you may build up to your full qualification over a period of time and take into account prior experience and qualifications or by an intensive 5 day course which incorporates everything.
