Hey there

I was wondering what kayaking courses are required to become an kayak instructor. If anyone could enlighten me on what the courses are and who you have to go through to do them that would be a great help.

NZOIA courses are your best bet. They are well known and have impact all over the world (But not cheap). Otherwise there are a few worthwhile courses to do. Call NZ Kayak School in Murchy, if they cant get you sorted no-one can.
