Even if you do not want to be an instructor, this course (with Kent) can change your paddling skills. I took it last year, since my paddling has improved. Kent is an amazing instructor with an eye for picking out (with a constructive eye) weak points in your technique. I had no idea how much thought needs to go into a forward stroke.

He also changed the way I roll. I always thought the C to C was the best, safest roll. Now I try to use the sweep (new sweep), it is less stress on your body and bombproof.

If you can take it, you should. I am a stronger paddler for it. If you are going to teach, it is indespensable.
