As of January 2021 this is now a single day assessment for those wishing to gain this British Canoeing professional leadership award. BC have reduced the ratio so only two candidates maximum can be assessed at once – and they are encouraging 1:1 courses. These changes do permit a more flexible approach to organising assessments which closer match candidate’s schedules and paddling areas.
Steve will advertise dates he has available for the assessment but will also be available to fit in with candidate requests – so please do call to discuss your specific needs. When you enrol, Steve will be happy to discuss your course in advance so you can ask questions and ensure you know exactly what to expect so you can be as well prepared as possible. The White Water Safety & Rescue course is a prerequisite for White Water Kayak Leader assessment candidates (see below for course dates).
“Hi Steve, I just wanted to say thank you so much for both the 4* WWK training course and this weekend’s assessment, I got a huge amount from it. Your manner throughout your courses is relaxing – incredibly calming, but most of all always 100% professional. Your ability to put me at ease in the situations where my HR is double what it should be is fantastic. You push to get the best from people without them even knowing they are doing it. Thank you once again for all your hard work and patience – must be tough work! Thank you so much.”
