BC Canoe White Water Leader Assessment

BCU 4 Star Canoe White Water Leader Assessment picture

Fluid skills deliver this course all over the UK and Europe; the assessment will be over one day focusing on personal skills, leadership styles and structures on grade 2/3 white water 

The assessment course will also cover aspects of white water rescue and safety and first aid.

There will be an assessor observing you for the day and assessed in a non-interventional and supportive way.

Successful assessment after training at this level indicates that the paddlers can consider themselves white water leaders on Grade 2/3 white water 

As they can now lead in a moderate water environment, they can do this in a competent manner and have the knowledge and ability to make decisions for the group for a safe decent of the river they have selected to use.

A full detailed action plan during the course will assist in your personal development after your course to help you continue your development from assessment.
