UPDATE: Due to the decision taken by the Paddle Victoria board, all education programs have been cancelled until further notice. Please contact the office to organise a refund or to register your interest for the next scheduled course.
The Flatwater Training Course is for people seeking professional certification in flat water paddling environments.
Paddle Victoria are holding a Level 1 Flatwater Guide Training Course on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March 2020 at Westerfolds Park in Templestowe.
Holders of the Flatwater Guide Award are qualified to lead or guide trips on inland waters such as open lakes and rivers (but not on whitewater or sea) in controlled conditions for inland kayaking and canoeing.
(ie you are not “teaching” the art of canoeing / kayaking – more supervising a safe canoeing/kayak activity). This is recommended for activities such as at camps, school outings, general “experience” programs.
