For Instructors‎ > ‎


  • All Tuesday instructor sessions will be held upstairs at Prospect United Church of Christ on Capitol Hill (1919 E Prospect St, Seattle, WA).
  • Instructors are also welcome to attend the student sessions, as space allows in the back on a first-come, first-served basis. This can be helpful for those working the corresponding weekend stations on that topic (e.g. navigation) or haven't heard the class material in a while.
  • The Tuesday session topics below are subject to slightly change.
  • Links below are to presentation slides. You will need to log into your Google account to view them.
MARCH 20 and 27th are not represented because instructors are needed downstairs to help teach knots to the students.
APRIL 17 there is no instructor lecture because students are needed downstairs to help give student knots tests.

2018 Schedule will be updated as dates are confirmed.
