BSA Paddle Craft Safety Training
BSA Paddle Craft Safety expands Safety Afloat training to include the skills, as well as the knowledge, required for a unit leader to assess whether or not they are qualified to supervise a canoeing activity. Persons completing the training will have the opportunity to learn the skills to safely launch and maneuver a canoe along with planning and rescue techniques.
There are two modules of training for canoeing
- River (moving water)
The training modules are open to any registered adult leader, Scout, Varsity, or Venturer, who is age 15 or older. The Basic Module Paddle Craft Safety is a prerequisite to the River (moving water) Module. Those who have previously taken Paddle Craft Safety are eligible to take the River Module.
