The Level I Course prepares successful applicants for work kayak guiding in relatively protected waters in B.C. under the highest standards of safety and professionalism. This information-packed, 5-day course includes both the Level I training and exam as well as SKGABC membership. Topics covered include technical kayak strokes and rescues; route planning; chart and compass navigation; detailed analysis of tides and currents; weather interpretation; environmental awareness and leadership and communication skill development on-water and with groups. Candidates are recommended to come in to the course with basic kayak skills already established, as well as an enthusiasm for learning and some familiarity with wilderness first aid.
**Note: All candidates must pay for their SKGABC membership prior to the course. This can be done online at www.skgabc.com. If students are not registered as a member we are unable to have them take the final exams.
