Have you thought about helping Brecon Canoe Club by becoming an Instructor? There are several routes for this, but the ‘easiest’ first step is to attend a 2-day Paddlesport Instructor Award which will qualify you to run taster sessions and journeys on Very Sheltered Water (including the pool, Brecon Promenade and the canal). Candidates need to be aged 14+ and have attended Foundation Safety & Rescue Training. Steve is running a few courses soon in Brecon which Club members might be interested in – and if you agree to use the qualification to help us run training sessions this year, we might even be able to meet some of the cost:
- Sun 6 & Sat 12 Feb – Paddlesport Instructor Award course in Brecon – this is being run by Steve for The Outdoor Partnership and there may be a spare place – cost £120-180 (to be confirmed), though subsidy might be available.
- Sun 6 Mar – Foundation Safety & Rescue Training in Brecon – £60 for Club members
- Sat 26-Sun 27 Mar – Paddlesport Instructor Award course in Brecon – cost £120-180 (depending on numbers), though subsidy might be available.
If you’re interested in any of these, please contact Steve for details or bookings (or for the March courses, checkout further detail in our Upcoming Events list).
