"Thanks for a brilliant weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I know the rest of the group did as well. As I said I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else looking for this course or any other for that matter and you will be our first choice should we be arranging similar courses in the future."

Sandy Johnston, Drumchapel & Clydebank Kayak Club - White Water Safety & Rescue Training

We offer a wide range of Activities
 

Safety Courses

We offer the BCU Foundation Safety and Rescue, White Water Safety and Rescue and Advanced White Water Safety and Rescue Training Courses. We can provide excellent quality clothing and equipment which allows us to operate throughout the year. Our aim is to deliver excellence and true value for money.

In addition to theses certified courses we have successfully run a scenarios weekend where the participants worked through dealing with a series of incidents over two days. The skills of the training courses were put to test and the challenges reinforced the need to practice the skills on a regular basis to ensure best practice is applied under stressful conditions.

We have a number of activity venues and natural sites which allow us to provide these courses throughout the paddling season.
