Do you want the skills to stay out of trouble? Want to know what to do if either you or others fall into the water? Then the Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT) could be for you!

Why take the Foundation Safety & Rescue Training (FSRT) course?

First of all, this award is all about keeping safe on sheltered water venues. So, whether you are paddling with friends or using the training course as preparation for Instructing and Leadership qualifications, this practical course is packed with safe, practical solutions. It doesn’t matter about your age or whether you Kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard, Canoe or Sit on Top, this course is solution focused and covers a full range of paddlesport craft.

If you needed any more convincing, the course is completely based around training, raising awareness with no assessment. Structured to support you, our experienced tutors will ensure you have plenty of time practising, as well as understanding how you can develop skills and experience after the course.
