Issues for Coaches:
Coaches must apply to canoe wales every 3 years to update. This means:
Maintain Canoe Wales Membership
Renew first aid every three years
Complete valid training: (Typically 1 day buys 18 months, 2 days buys 3 years update but you need to check each course).
Working with Youth Safeguarding Training:
UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children classroom course (SPC).
Equivalent certificated 2/3 hour course (i.e. most work courses) acceptable. See document SPC-G14 in above link.
