Advanced Water

An Advanced Water Leader is someone who wants to take paddlers on trips and journeys in the advanced water environment. This involves a high level of personal skill, leadership ability and judgement to lead groups on advanced river journeys, advanced tidal water or advanced white water. These discipline specific awards enable Advanced Water Leaders to select appropriate environments for paddlers with a range of experiences. An Advanced Water Leader is a highly skilled paddler who is committed to developing themselves and others in the advanced water environment. 

Advanced Canoe Leader Training

If you’re looking to lead canoeists on advanced river journeys and on remote, exposed open waters, this three day training focuses on the high level of personal skills, judgement and leadership needed in advanced situations. The course covers personal paddling skills, rescue skills, safety, leadership and group skills and the theory.

Advanced Canoe Leader Assessment

To become an Advanced Canoe Leader, you will need to successfully complete a two day, mainly practical assessment, as well as two evening exercises, on sections of advanced white water and advanced open water. Advanced Canoe Leaders need to have the personal skill level, leadership ability and judgement to lead paddlers with a range of experience, up to and including advanced white water and advanced open water
