Foundation Safety and Rescue Training

The Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT) course will equip you with the key safety and rescue skills to deal with common emergencies, and forms the backbone for all safety and rescue training throughout the British Canoeing scheme. By the end of the course you will have the knowledge to ensure the safety of yourself and others, and to equip you with the basic rescue skills to help anyone in difficulty.

It is highly recommended that all paddlers and bank based helpers attend this training course. It is also a pre-requisite for the Paddlesport Instructor to attend, so if you're thinking of entering the coaching scheme then this is a must for you.

Safety & Rescue Skills Builder

Why not join us for a day to deepen your knowledge of safety and rescue techniques? This course is aimed at people who are looking to further develop their safety and rescue skills within the sheltered water environment. We will specifically be looking at mixed craft rescues covered within the Paddlesport Instructor and Paddlesport Leader assessments. These include recover a capsized paddler and their equipment from deep water, recover an upright and incapacitated paddler and their equipment to shore in deep water, rescue an unconscious paddler and their equipment, and perform an effective self rescue. We will develop your problem solving ability to be able to effectively complete the rescues of a range of craft (eg canoe, kayak, SUP) from your chosen craft.
