Slackline Australia Instructor

Slackline Australia Instructor - Level 1

You are always lending a hand to newbies and possibly already helping out at a Slackline Australia Centre of Balance or Slackline School.  You not only want a professional certification but you want to share and refine your instructing skills within the Slackline Australia Professional Network. 
Rather than run a Centre of Balance or Slackline School, you just want to teach basic slacklining and leave competitive coaching or program design to others or for later on.  This course would be equivalent to (or better than) doing the WSFED basic instructor course if you were in Europe.

In this course you will learn the essentials for a professional basic slackline instructor.   You will gain a broad knowledge of basic slacklinig instructing techniques and focus on being able to deliver a polished professional session.

During the course you will learn to:
Outline how the balance system works; Identify Hazards; Select Appropriate Sites; Maintain Industry Standards; Routinely Inspect Equipment; Recognise unsafe practices; Demonstrate Correct Spilling and Spotting Techniques; Facilitate Groups; Minimise environmental impact; Efficiently Record & Report to promote Slacklining and to help minimise liability and maximise earnings.

For Skilled Slackliners this course is  1 ½  days plus 5hrs home study and 10hrs teaching practicum.

Induction- to Commercial Environment, OH&S, Risk Assessments, Codes of Conduct, Industry  standards.

Attunement- Aspects of Balance, Professional Slackline Australia Network, Best Practices

Slackline Australia Instructor – Level 2

You are a skilled slackliner and you know that this is your calling. You will be able to set a level of professional practice that rises above all adventure activity standards that could be applied. You will be able to solve problems and establish events and programs that other Slackline Australia leaders can support you in.
