Paddle Craft Safety Training

BSA Paddle Craft Safety builds upon the safety lessons learned in Safety Afloat training to include the skills, as well as the knowledge, needed for an adult leader to confidently supervise canoeing or kayaking trips on flat and moving water. There are 2 modules of training for canoeing: (1) Basic and (2) River (moving water). As a result, the training is typically spread over two days, and located on two different waterways.

Persons completing the training should be better able to assess their preparation to supervise paddle craft activities. The training is conducted by a council approved instructor, takes roughly eight hours, and is valid for three years.
