Safety Afloat expects those supervising Scout boating activities to have knowledge and skills sufficient to conduct the programs safely. Previous Aquatics Supervision: Paddle Craft Safety courses provide appropriate training for canoeing or kayaking excursions on flat water. Two new modules extend the training to river environments.

The previous courses are now labeled “basic” courses and are prerequisites for the new “river” courses. The ACA/BSA video, Reading the Rhythms of Rivers and Rapids, alerts participants to a wide range of moving water and whitewater features.

However, there is no substitute for on-water experience. Therefore, the bulk of the training takes place on a river.
