DAYSKIPPER COURSE REVIEW ON 2020

The scheduled dayskipper course commenced in March 2020 and was scheduled to be held in the club.  This however had to be re configured as an online zoom class given the COVID pandemic. 

It was undertaken without any real knowledge of zoom and with limited experience of the platform.  We jumped in the deep end and were pleasantly surprised by the many benefits to using zoom. I literally had a 'captive audience' and this allowed for three evening classes per week.  As we progressed, the zoom platform became more comfortable and the use of screen sharing, breakout rooms, etc., helped to add interest and depth to the course. 

The first course started in March with four participants with all achieving their certificates in early May. The second course started in October with eight participants and certificates being awarded in early December. Congratulations to all 12 participants.
