Many Nordic Walking instructors find they need an assistant to help them as their groups and classes grow. The Nordic Walk Leader can work alongside an Instructor as a support for larger groups or to lead walks on their own where all the participants are already able to Nordic walk. Many Nordic walking community projects use Nordic walk leaders, for example Age UK and Age Cymru. People new to Nordic walking complete an 8 week course with a qualified Nordic Walking Instructor and then go on to join regular led walks by a Nordic Walk leader.

The British Nordic Walking Nordic walk leader course is fun and interactive. You will learn to lead and motivate a group of Nordic Walkers, plan safe and interesting Nordic walks. The course includes learning how to do risk assessments and deal with emergency situations. You also learn how to set the correct pace for your group and ensure everyone has a positive experience of your lead Nordic walks.

If you have any questions about the course please drop us an email or ring the office.
