Well, here we are – at the end! Not really a whole week, but officially the end of the course. And I am shattered. It’s been a full-on week – with the pre-entry assessment, followed by the five-day dinghy instructor course.
It’s been an interesting week, looking at the different sessions that you can run as an instructor, how to deliver them, and practicing delivering them, as well as presentations and more. A good week on the whole – and ended in the result I wanted (although I’ll be honest, I never thought that I was going to get there!). Just goes to show how perseverance can pay off.
If you’d told fifteen, nineteen year old me that I would be happy standing up in front of a group of people and delivering presentations and briefs and more without feeling sick and red-faced, then I wouldn’t have believed you at all. And yet, here I am.
And so that’s it, the course is done!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been three months, it’s absolutely flown by, but it’s been the best decision that I’ve made in a long time. I’m feeling quite lost this evening… but looking forward to going home for a bit to have a mini holiday, before heading back to start work! New adventures ahead….
