I’ve never really had much experience in the Paddlesports side of Adventure Training, I’ve read the ACATI but certain things still aren’t particularly clear to me.
Firstly I have a member of Staff who is a Level 1 Coach and a Paddlesport Leader, I know through my reading that he would therefore be able to deliver Canoe Start and Canoe Discover , however he doesn’t seem to know and I don’t seem to be able to find a) the syllabus that would need to be delivered or the process he needs to go through to sign them off/achieve the awards. (The BCU website is my mortal enemy it’s seems overly clunky!)
Secondly he has the SUP module, is there an SUP equivalent of those awards? Or is it all Canoe & Kayak at that level?
Finally I’ve started doing quite a bit of SUP over lockdown and I’m considering getting myself one of the standalone SUP qualifications, I can see that there are loads of different providers, has anyone got any advice on which one to look at? I’m only looking to use it on sheltered lakes/canals Is the first instance.
