23 Sep 2020 British Canoeing Foundation Safety & Rescue Training course (by Steve Rayner Outdoor Pursuits)
Wed 23 Sep
All my courses will be run in accordance with Covid-19 regulations and guidance.
The FSRT course is intended for all paddlers, coaches and volunteers irrespective of craft or discipline choice, and is available in either bank-based or boat-based option (or a combined course covering both). It provides training on key skills needed to operate safely and deal with common emergencies in a sheltered water environment in any craft. Candidates should be competent paddling in both kayak and canoe to enable them to complete the course, although it is not necessary formally to hold a Personal Performance Award.
The FSRT course is a pre-requisite for the British Canoeing Paddlesport Instructor Award.
The FSRT course comprises a minimum of 8-hours training and is usually conducted over one long day; this course will take place in Brecon.
While there remain restrictions on indoor gatherings, most courses will include video-conference sessions to cover ‘classroom’ topics. These will usually be a few days before and/or after the main ‘practical’ (outdoor) sessions, arranged to suit participants on each course. The dates shown below are for the ‘practical’ sessions only.
No minimum age (although paddlers must be physically able to undertake the course!).
£75 each. Contact organiser to book places or find out more.
