IKO INSTRUCTOR & ASSISTANT COURSE
We will run the Assistant and Instructor course at the spring of 2022. Dates 19 - 23 April for the assistant course and 25 - 29 April for the instructor course. On April 24, you can take CPR if you have not taken that course. If you complete the entire education, you will become a licensed IKO instructor L1. The education includes official course documentation and certification.
As a licensed IKO instructor, you hold kite courses according to the world's largest standard for safe education and can start your own business or work at kite schools all over the world.
We complete both courses ATC and ITC, also the CPR, with the very experienced IKO examiner, Maciej Wadolowski.
You learn pedagogy, education plan, safety, aerodynamics, weather and much more.

THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The IKO assistant and the instructor course are very solid. It is full days of theory, practice and actual course elements that are reviewed. You will learn about pedagogy, training plans, safety, teaching from a boat, self rescue, tides, currents, winds and weather.
Be prepared for whole days, from morning to afternoon daily, including evening work, self-study and theoretical tests. You can not do anything else these days. The entire training is 10 days, and extends over two weekends and ends with a training test.
If you do not pass the test or for some reason the weather and wind do not allow certain steps, you can do it afterwards, go shadow with an IKO level 2 instructor at an IKO center and complete your education.
At Blekinge Surf and Kiteboardcenter in Stockholm, among others, we have IKO level 2 instructors for this purpose.
