Sensi Graves Kiteboarding

The aim has been to produce one recognised instructor training route for kitesurfing in the UK.

That standardises the level of this training, to link British Kitesports training to a world based standard and replace all current licenses with one recognised license only.

The British Kitesports ITC has been modified to include extra areas of training specific to the UK.

The syllabus forms the core of the course package with further areas that include foil training as well as single skin kites, further safety inputs and the legal and administrative requirements that an instructor must be aware of when setting up their own school within the UK.

The instructor training has been structured to be delivered on a modular bases, which means you may build up to your full qualification over a period of time and taking into account prior experience and qualifications.
