A relaxed, enjoyable stress-free assessment, with you at the heart of the process! If all the preparation is in place this assessment is us joining you on the water to see you in your environment and support you with your leadership journey.


To become a paddlesport touring leader you will need to attend an assessment. The assessment takes place over a typical paddling day, depending on the logistics relating to accessing the suitable environments you and your assessor might agree on a longer assessment. The assessment will involve you displaying all the appropriate personal skills, leadership and group skills, rescue skills as well as underpinning background knowledge.

We will help guide you through the prior planning for the assessment, discussing logistics with you and ensure there are participants to lead on the day. We believe in a relaxed, enjoyable stress-free assessment, with you at the heart of the process!
