Paddle Craft Safety Certification - CHALLENGE TESTING
How can you obtain or renew the new BSA Canoe Paddle Craft Safety Certification '
1. Adult leaders are encouraged to attend the Voyageur Adult Leader Training program (conducted at Camp Belzer twice each year). All certification requirements (except the swimmer test) are taught during the course, and certification testing is conducted.
2. Adults who have completed the four-day Voyageur training program may need only return for their fifth (returnee / assistant instructor) day, and pass the written test at the end of the day after a review of material.
3. Adults who have completed all five days of the Voyageur training program (have obtained the Instructor Arc) within the previous three years (six courses) need only return the second Saturday of a scheduled course, and pass the written test after a review of the material.
4. Adult leaders and youth members who are confident they can pass the performance and written requirements may "challenge" the test.
