A couple weeks back, on the weekend of April 10th, 11th, 12th (counting Friday), I went to the IMBA Level 1 instructor certification clinic. This clinic focused primarily on guiding a ride, but did include some basic skills instruction. I had two really good instructors that were great at passing along not only the skills but on how to instruct the skills. One of the things that I found most challenging at first, was watching the other students who were making deliberate mistakes and trying to catch/correct them.
Overall, the course was fun and a informational. I’m pretty excited to go for my Level 2 at some point, but will probably have to wait until next year.
