Instructor Updates
Share |

Since the first National Paddlesports Conference in 2008; Instructors, Instructor Trainers and Instructor Trainer Educators have gathered for continuing education through educational sessions provided by the SEI Department. The overall goal of this educational sharing is for Instructors, ITs and ITEs to earn the required certification updates in their given discipline.

This sharing of techniques, policy and educational theory affords Instructors, ITs and ITEs the opportunity to gain cutting edge knowledge and ensures consistency in educational practices.

As part of the 2016 National Paddlesports Conference in Sausalito, Instructors and Instructor Trainers will have the opportunity to fulfill the Update requirement as referenced in the SEIC Policy Manual. (See reference below)
