Other Courses

Courses Available

Quite literally any outdoor pursuits course can be arranged, or we can point you in the right direction if we don't offer it directly.  Chris Brain specialises in paddlesport, safety and rescue, leadership and first aid training.  Some of the qualification courses we offer are


British Canoeing Star awards (1, 2, 3 star multiple disciplines)

British Canoeing Leadership award (4 and 5 star multiple disciplines)

British Canoeing Safety and Rescue Courses (FSRT, WWSR)

REC First Aid Courses (ranging from 4hrs to 3 days, with our most popular being the 2 day outdoor based)


Bespoke Courses

Most of our courses are private bookings for groups and this gives you the most flexibility with dates, venues and participants.  It also allows us to give you the best price we can and to ensure your course is tailored for your group and your needs.  We can deliver non qualification skills based courses and personal coaching too, so if you have a specific area you would like to develop in the best thing to do is to get in touch.
