The British Canoeing Coach Level 1 course incorporates both training and assessment components.  There are 2 pre-requisite courses for the Coach 1 course; Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT) and BC 2 Star Award

The Coach Level 1 is a multidiscipline coach; the certification covers kayaks, canoes and possibly stand up paddleboards, introducing newer participants to paddling on flat, protected waters.  Level 1 candidates should have competency paddling kayaks and at least 1 single bladed discipline (canoes or SUPs).  2 Star training covers both double and single bladed disciplines.

We don’t currently have a Coach 1 course scheduled for 2017
