This course will introduce the novice paddler to paddling with a partner in sheltered calm waters and to introduce basic land and water rescue techniques.
Tandem Lake Intermediate

Students will learn to demonstrate confidence in open water environments and will develop a greater awareness of environmental hazards and how to avoid/react to those hazards.
Whmis/Global Harmonized System
Anyone working as an employee or volunteer in a workplace where there are chemicals of any kind (this includes cleaning solutions) need to be trained in the proper care, use and labelling of such chemicals and hazardous materials. The WHMIS/GHS course teaches both the current system (Whmis) and the upcoming system (GHS) which is currently being phased in by the Government of Canada with a deadline for changeover of December of 2018. Anyone already trained with Whmis will need to be retrained with GHS before the deadline. This combined course covers the changes between the two systems, as well.
The Goal of Project WILD is to assist learners of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills and commitment to result in informed decisions. It creates responsible behaviour and constructive action concerning wildlife and the environment upon which all life depends. This program is based on learning through games and activities.

Some of the areas covered are: goals, decision making, earning money, spending money, credit, saving, investing and planning for the future.
