All active Coaches have a responsibility to maintain a current first aid award, to ensure they can look after paddlers in their care. Coaches sign a declaration upon registration for our Coaching qualifications accepting this responsibility. Holding a valid first aid award is also part of the BCU Coach Update Scheme; Coaches who meet these requirements are recognised by the BCU as being active and up-to-date.
In order to meet the First Aid requirement all BCU Coaches (except BCU (UKCC) Level 1) need a recognised first aid certificate (that meets the required training contact time), recorded on their Home Nation Association membership record.
