Becoming A Provider – Provider Finder!

Quality training from the world's largest paddling course provider

What is Find A Provider?  

Find A Provider, is a web-based search function that will enable anyone accessing the Paddles Up Training website Course Provider. 

The system allows a search to be made based on distance from a town or postcode. A filter  can also be added to a provider of a particular type of training or qualification. 

How does the system choose providers to display?  

Users will be able to search for any provider of our training or qualifications from Paddle  Award Provider to Advanced Coaching and Leadership Providers. 

The search function makes several checks before it displays a provider: 

  1. That the provider has ‘opted in’ and given permission for their information to be  displayed. 
  2. That the Provider has current membership at the level required for the Provider  Role. 
  3. That the Provider meets the Update Requirements for the Provider Role. 4. That the Provider has the required role. 

The search function will then list all providers that meet the search criteria:
