Typically the Club runs two level 1 Aquatic First Aid Courses each year. The next course will be in June 2018.
Holding an 8 hour first aid qualification is a requirement for BCU Coaches level 1 and 2 and for the Pool Endorsement. We recommend that all canoeists should hold at least an 8 hour qualification, such as the BCU Level 1 Aquatic First Aid.
BCU Aquatic First Aid Level 1
This award is intended to address the First Aid incidents most likely to arise during the majority of canoeing situations and includes:
- Drowning and cold water immersion
- Effects of heat and cold
- Wounds and major bleeding
Assessment will be on-going during the course, rather than by final examination.
Minimum age - 14 years.
Cost (L1 only): £30.00/35.00 (see application form).
The course lasts 8 hours and will be run on a single day.
