Learn how to rescue and deal with situations in conditions that vitally need the knowledge of rescues and safety. This very enjoyable course is designed to provide paddlers with the necessary knowledge such as: Skills which will enable them to ensure the safety of themselves and others; Appropriate rescue skills which can be used to help themselves and/or others in difficulty; And how to use the appropriate safety equipment on flat/sheltered water. As this is one of the pre-requests to become a qualified Instructor or Coach, we are also externally organising these courses so that it is possible to progress to an instructor/coach level, if you so wish to progress along the coaching pathway. This provides the information and coaching to be able to safely rescue another paddler in many different situations. This is an enjoyable practical course. You must be prepared to get wet for this course. This Course is ideal for any scout leaders, parents and paddlers that are regularly out on the water and want to keep their fellow paddlers safe in case of an emergency.
