Overview

On this five day enhanced course, you'll work with our highly qualified team to move your leadership skills above the minimum required for this level. You'll paddle white water in spectacular Snowdonia whilst you hone the skills you need to lead a group of paddlers in appropriate locations, up to moderate white water conditions. We'll show you how to judge the conditions, and the standard of the group, then make appropriate decisions along with the need to modify plans as required. You'll also cover the WWSR course.
