Starts September 11, 2013
The CANSail Fundamental Course is the first step in the CANSail Instructor system. Successful completion of this course will enable instructor candidates to attend further clinics such as the CANSail Level 1&2, 3&4, and 5&6 Instructor Training Clinics. The CANSail Fundamental Course has been developed to provide an opportunity for instructors to reflect, problem solve, collaborate with peers and continue to build on knowledge from previous experiences, skills and new knowledge acquired from the clinic.
This course is mandatory for anyone taking a coach/instructor development clinic.
This particular Fundamental course is being facilitated as weekly online classroom sessions using a virtual classroom website.
The Candidate is responsible for completing the required material within the course timelines.  The required material includes:
– Completed PDF workbook (emailed upon registration)
– Completed emergency action plan
– 2 Completed Lesson plans (1 for a land lesson and 1 for a water lesson)
– A video taped 10-15 minute land lesson, topic to be determined by the Learning Facilitator
It is also mandatory to participate in the online classroom sessions with the Learning Facilitator.
Once the original submission has been handed in, the Learning Facilitator will evaluate the submission and review it with the Candidate.  The Candidate will then have 2 weeks to revise and resubmit it for final evaluation.
