YES!!!!!!!!! I have never done any formal instruction since taking the class, but the class was the best thing I've ever done for my growth as a paddler. Learning basic skills and drills, safety, and teaching techniques, from the best instructor on the planet
, what more could you ask for? All the parts of the class were helpful. Everyone, not just people who want to be instructors, should take this course if they want to be a better and smarter paddler. I can't think of anything I'd change about the course. Maybe not the feedback you're looking for, but it's all I's got. You do a great job, Kent, and so it's not too surprising to me that you're still looking to improve. Keep up the good work. The planet is much better off with you a part of it.
