This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to consolidate their rescue skills, learn essential rescue techniques and work towards becoming an independent paddler. It covers equipment, paddling safely, different rescue techniques for different situations and supporting paddlers who have become incapacitated or injured.
This course is a pre-requisite for the Level 1 Coach Award and anyone wanting to do a Level 1 coaching course in the future would be advised to do this course now (in the warm weather!). Attendees should be at roughly 2 star standard and able to paddle both a canoe and kayak.
If you have any questions about your suitability for the course please contact the course organiser Andy Brown for more information. Certification can only be issued to those over the age of 14, but under 14's may attend the course. The course is open to both HPPCC members and non-members.
