Canoeing Ireland is looking for expressions of interest in participating in flat water instructor training or assessment in SUP, Canoe, or Kayak in the coming months. In order to gauge interest there is a form below which we would request any interested paddler fill out.

The purpose of this Form is to gain and understanding of where demand is for instructor training so that we can link with our Affiliated training providers and partners to provide training regionally where there is demand.

We would really appreciate you take the time to fill in the form and share with other members or people who might be interested in doing Flat water instructor training.

It is also hoped that we will be share similar forms like this one at other points of the year to gauge interest for other awards.

With the current restrictions, we are running courses with a smaller capacity, we are running courses/assessments on a more regional and local Basis where possible, and we are trying to facilitate a POD based approach where possible. Filling in this Form will help with this.

Please bear with us as we try clear the backlog of people requiring training and assessments, as the instructor training season was delayed due to the lockdown. Many of our providers have entered their busy season, so we will have to work with them to try run as many courses as possible around their everyday paddle sports activities.

If you have questions or comments re the awards, please get in touch with me directly at
