BC Advanced Water Kayak Leader Training

November 4, 2019 @ 8:00 am - November 5, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


Course Outline

Successful performance at this British Canoeing Advanced Water Leader Training indicates that a candidate has the skill level required to lead a group of 4 paddlers (not including themselves) in appropriate locations, up to Advanced white water conditions and to judge the conditions and the standard of the group and make appropriate decisions along with the need to modify plans as required.

The BC Advanced Water Leader Award is a leadership award and not a coaching award.

Following assessment BC Advanced Water Leaders must have in place civil liability insurance (included in comprehensive Home Nation membership), knowledge of Child Protection guidelines and good practice including checks where necessary and maintain evidence of currency.

To achieve BC Advanced Water Leader candidates are required to attend BC Advanced Water Leader Training.

This involves at least 2 days of formal training in personal skills and leadership. Some training courses also include the prerequisite BC White Water Safety and Rescue Training Course (extending the programme by an additional 2 days).

  • Training is valid for 3 years, during this time, and upon completion of the assessment prerequisites candidates can then put themselves forward for assessment.
  • Assessments are normally run over 2 days.
