Registration Guidance

Anyone wishing to pursue a Coaching or Leadership Qualification is required to centrally register with the appropriate Home Nation Association (British Canoeing, Canoe Wales, Scottish Canoe Association, Canoe Association of Northern Ireland or British Canoeing International).

Registration is separate from booking a place on a course; the latter is done directly with the Course Provider. It is worth noting that many Course Providers want to see evidence of Registration at the point of booking.

The Registration Guidance is for British Canoeing English members to register for a course.
