• IKO Assistant Instructor Course

    The assistant instructor program is essential to candidates with no prior teaching background in kiteboarding. If you intend on following an ITC (instructor’s course) the assistant instructor program is a prerequisite to be IKO instructor level 1. The courses can be scheduled by arrangement. The Assistant instructor level allows you to begin working in a school under the supervision of a level 2 instructor.

    Training course

    The training is organized in 3 steps and is completed in a minimum of 2 days. The 2 first steps are usually completed in 1 day: – Evaluation of your competencies: kiteboarding knowledge, practice level, – Theoretical competencies: level check and update of knowledge. A visit of the school also takes place during the 1st day in order for you to better understand the way it works (bookings, equipment storage, spot, etc.) During the 3rd step, you will work with your instructor level 2 in live situation. You act as assistant instructor during at least 9 hours of lessons.

    Note: at the beginning of the training, each candidate receives an Assistant Instructor Manual as well as a copy of the Kiteboarder’s Workbook. The assistant instructor’s diploma is presented at the end of the training and upon successful completion. Your benefits: become part of IKO’s international network! Once certified, you will get your IKO ID that allows you to log in the pro area of the website. As an assistant instructor you benefit from numerous job opportunities thanks to the job offers to which you have access in the pro area of the web site. Moreover, you have priority over other candidates for ITC level 1.
