This is a great resource for instructors, coaches, leaders, providers, deployers and activity providers, looking to further develop an understanding of the responsibilities of managing risk, as well as identifying risk and writing risk assessments.
  • Environmental definitions and deployment guidance: This document provides guidance and environmental definitions that can be applied when choosing paddlesport activity. There have been several updates to the document to provide clarity. There have been no changes to any areas of operation for BCAB/BC qualifications and awards.
