1:1 Sea kayak training and assessment courses

Combining sea kayak training with an assessment

Attendance on a training course does not imply that you will have reached the required standard to pass the assessment straight after training. A lot will depend on your level of paddle skills and experience. Contact us to discuss this option.

For all assessments ensure you have read the syllabus for the relevant BC award.
