Due to the circumstances we find ourselves in at present, many Instructors, Coaches, Leaders and Guides may be struggling to gain access to courses to be able to renew their First Aid qualification.
British Canoeing recognise this as a difficult time and could be worrying for individuals and anyone deploying supervised paddlesport activities.
For anyone who is required to renew their First Aid qualification from the 16th March 2020 and is unable to access a course we are providing a FREE eLearning course that will be recognised by all National Associations as a 3 month extension.
The First Aid Extension eLearning is a 15 minute programme which requires both your full name and National Association membership number. After completion of the course, your attendance will be communicated to your National Association and your record updated
This online resource acts as an extension and is not a replacement for a face to face First Aid programme, and we would expect within a sensible time period a renewal course to be attended.
British Canoeing will review this matter over the coming months and will issue further statements as necessary.
