Foundation Safety & Rescue Training

The British Canoeing Awarding Body Foundation Safety and Rescue Training course is intended for all paddlers, coaches and volunteers, irrespective of craft or discipline choice.

It provides training on key skills needed to operate safely and deal with common emergencies in a sheltered water environment. These skills then form the foundations for safety and rescue throughout British Canoeing Awarding Body awards.

The objective of this Training course is to introduce simple and safe skills that can provide the tools to problem solve simple common paddling scenarios in flat/sheltered water regardless of the craft.

Candidates will learn skills which will enable them to ensure the safety of themselves and others and appropriate rescue skills which can be used to help themselves and/or others in difficulty.

The course is very much on/in the water and is a lot of fun. There is quite a lot of content so will usually be a Saturday and part Sunday.
