Course and assessment outlines from different bodies can be found here. They have similarities. They also target different environments, levels and coaching steps. Our thoughts will appear in descriptions on how certain techniques should be performed. The advantage of a skilled coach is that he/she can introduce you to skills and knowledge that you did not realise that existed and can expand the knowledge you already have.
Your quickest entry to kayaking skills is to attend our five hour beginners course. Attend one of the sheduled courses and if you cannot match one of the available we try to organise one suitable for you. For groups larger than 4 people we can organise a bespoke class.
The structure and emphasis in the course contents will vary to meet the skills and needs of the clients while the goal is to cover and develop skills and understanding needed for a 1 Star certificate. This course is also the basis for continuing towards 2 and 3 star asessments.
