If you don’t have your own wakeboard or wetsuit, don’t worry, we can provide all necessary equipment.

Qualification
At the end of the course and once you are the required standard to pass the exams, you are issued with a certificate from Industry Wake Parks to show you have successfully passed your System 2.0 Operators and Instructors Course.

British Waterski Wakeboard License
You can also have your qualification licensed to the BWSW, which you are required to do, in order to work at some parks. In addition to successfully passing the System 2.0 Operators and Instructors Course, you will need to:

– Have a valid first aid certificate (1/2 day course)

We don’t include this in the Zero to Hero course, because people attending the course may already have some or all of these additional items and some may have non.

Once the course is booked up and we know what everyones current position is, we may look to run a first aid course and safeguarding and protecting children course during the first 5 days.
