Training with Cardrona ITC

While a large majority of my season this year was focused on 360 work, I did spend a chunk of the winter training instructors for Cardrona ITC and Examining with SBINZ.

My work with Cardrona ITC was a few days a week, training a very fun group of eight international trainees on a 10-week-long instructor training course.

Eight trainees in such a programme can be a challenge. Eight completely different backgrounds and experiences, eight very diverse learning styles, eight sets of goals and, most importantly, eight different motivation levels.

Fortunately, all the trainees were pretty motivated this year, with a few being stand-out in their desire to reach their goals. As a result, we had all eight pass their Level One and Children’s Teaching Certification, with six of the eight passing Level Two.

Good job guys and thanks for a fun season!
