British Canoeing Awarding Body launches the NEW Advanced White Water Safety Course

Quality training from the world's largest paddling course provider

The Advanced White Water Safety course is designed to support kayakers and canoeists on grade 3 and 4 white water rivers. The two day course will cover casualty management, moving around steep environments, dealing with stuck craft and paddlers, in complex environments.

Following on from the Introduction to White Water Safety and the White Water Safety courses, BCAB are delighted to launch the Advanced White Water Safety course. This programme is available to all those that operate within the advanced white water environment, and will be delivered by experienced individuals that regularly guide and play in such demanding venues. A huge thanks to the White Water Technical Group as well as those that have contributed in developing this training course

Lee Pooley Director of Coaching & Qualifications.

The Advanced White Water Safety course is a 2-day programme that consists of 12 modules. This can be delivered in a day or modular, over a maximum of an eight-week period to suit the participants.

Participants need to either hold the relevant British Canoeing Awarding Body Personal Performance Award or equivalent ability in/on their preferred craft due to the paddling environment and the boat control required to complete the course.

The NEW Advanced White Water Safety course is available NOW!

Please note, this course will replace the existing Advanced White Water Safety and Rescue (Ad.WWSR).
