This course is the Queensland Canoeing pathway to prepare the participant for the Flatwater Guide Assessment to achieve their Australian Canoeing Award Scheme qualification.

The Flatwater Guide Award is for people seeking professional certification in flat water paddling environments. The Australian Canoeing Award Scheme (ACAS) is the industry benchmark certification designed to meet the needs of the canoeing / kayaking guide industry for education, recreational and tourism sectors nationwide.

Holders of the Flatwater Guide Award have been assessed at and are qualified to lead or guide day and half day trips on inland waters such as open lakes and rivers (but not on whitewater or at sea) in controlled conditions for inland kayaking and canoeing which include:

  • Sheltered and calm waters

  • Minimal flow of water

An assessment day is also required to obtain the full certification
