This course delivers the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to paddle a canoe on a planned course as part of a group on waterways that feature slow moving water conditions. It covers the skills to paddle on rivers, up to grade 1, and on large open bodies of water such as lakes or dams. The course also delivers skills and knowledge to lead and supervise dependent participants. For rivers, grade 1 refers to the International River Grading System which provides a broad indication of a river’s rapid features, and the degree of difficulty in negotiating these. These rivers have long stretched of slow moving water that could feature regular small waves and or riffles, relatively few obstacles and an easy passage to find and follow. Large bodies of water also feature slow moving water conditions
