    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.


    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.  You just want to teach basic slacklining  and leave competitive coaching or course 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.

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