This one day assessment concentrates on the practical delivery of sessions by the candidate, session safety and personal performance. Currently there are various options to the assessment route, boat based, bank based, canoe, kayak or existing route.The course is restricted to only 3 candidates. You are also encouraged to provide your own suitable candidates for your assessment. Considerable pre-assessment planning has to take place before candidates are ready for assessment, therefore it is important that you are given sufficient time to plan your assessed sessions, so that a realistic and honest assessment can be achieved on the day.
