How does assessment work?

To complete the assessment the students must be seen to have developed their paddling skill related to the goals agreed between the candidate and the students.

Over the course of the assessment candidates will be asked to demonstrate the appropriate rescue skills for the environment

Prior to an assessment you will be given the opportunity to contact the students to gather information about their ability, equipment needs and aspirations for the day. You will be encouraged to plan the day in detail with logistical support from Wild River if necessary.
