The British Canoeing Awarding Body White Water Safety and Rescue Training is designed for all paddlers operating in the white water environment, either in a kayak or canoe. It aims to teach simple and practical safety and rescue skills that can be applied appropriately to a moderate white water environment.
Using a range of simulated scenarios, this Training course teaches safe paddling strategies. The majority of the content is delivered by hands-on, practical sessions supported by short riverside periods covering the theoretical content.
