  • assist a Basic Kayak Instructor Trainer on a Basic Kayak Instructor or Waterfront Instructor course.


  • At least 18 years of age.
  • Skills Certification
    • Paddle Canada Level-2 Skills.

  • First Aid Certification
    • Current certification in first aid (14 hours) with CPR.
  • Paddling Experience

Skills certification prerequisite note: With the permission of the Instructor Trainer, a candidate may enroll in a Level-1 Instructor course prior to completing their Level-2 Skills certification.

Passing the instructor course will be subject to the provision of completing the required Level-2 skill certification and updating the Instructor Course Report within one year.
