SEA KAYAK TRAINING

 

TRAINING OF COMMERCIAL ["PRO'] SEA KAYAK ADVENTURE GUIDES

Under the previous SATOUR dispensation, RECSKASA, was the only association which was accredited with the training and registering of sea kayak guides. Attempts by others to train sea kayak guides in opposition to this legitimate training of sea kayak guides were done in conflict with this accreditation. Under the new dispensation, effective from 2002, training is not the exclusive province of associations anymore and now associations as well as individuals can register as trainers of commercial guides, if they meet the requirements.

 

TRAINING OF RECREATIONAL SEA PADDLERS.

In respect of the training of recreational ["non-commercial"] sea kayak paddlers, trainers can also become registered as recreational sea kayak trainers and offer such training. Anybody charging for training, whether it's for commercial or recreational paddling purposes, must be a registered trainer offering accredited courses which conform to the standards which have been set and registered on the NQF [the National Qualifications Network], recorded by SAQA [the South African Qualifications Authority] and executed by the appropriate THETA [Tourism, Hospitality, Education and Training Authority].
