Event Description

PADDLING SUPERVISOR TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT COURSE

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2019

Award Definition:

The Flatwater Supervisor Award is for people seeking professional certification in enclosed flatwater paddling areas perfect for school and group camp style paddling needs.

The Paddle Australian Qualification Scheme (PAQS) is the industry benchmark certification designed to meet the need for paddling qualifications for use in education, recreational and tourism sectors nationwide.

Holders of the Flatwater Supervisor award are qualified to supervise a paddling activity with novice paddlers on flatwater areas such as lakes, dams, slow moving rivers etc. where the group under supervision can always be seen from a single vantage point and does not leave the immediate launch area.

  • e.: - you are able to impart the skills required for participants to partake in an activity with you, where if anything goes wrong you are there to deal with it.

Pre-Requisites:

  • Personal flatwater paddling skills as defined in the PAQS basic skills awards
  • Recommended obtaining prior to course:
    • First Aid and CPR certificates (appropriate to your organisations requirements & area of operation)
    • some experience and logged hours working as an assistant or observer under training

Course Description:

  • The Paddle Queensland Flatwater Guide Training Course consists of two full days approximately 8:00am to 5:00pm each day
  • Participants should expect each day to consist of approximately half a day in a semi classroom-style environment and the other half of each day on the water
  • Candidates must be prepared to put their skills into practice and will be required to do some work prior to the course to assist in moving swiftly through the syllabus
  • Participants should come prepared for paddling sessions in both the morning and afternoon of the course
  • Please note:
    • this is a flatwater supervisor training course
    • it is not a skills course
    • candidates are expected to have the personal flatwater skills as identified in the “Basic Skills Award” prior to commencement of the course
