Narrowboat Training and Assessment for Scout Leaders

Handling a boat through a lock.

Cheshire Scout Narrowboating provide Assessment of the Scouts Adventurous Activity Permit, and training if necessary.

We provide permits to leaders from every part of the UK.

We are happy to issue Permits under ‘Grandfather Rights’ for leaders with sufficient current experience.  For those lacking experience or  Qualification we provide nationally accepted training.

We train to the National Canal Boat Association’s Certificate of Community Boat Management, using one of their certified trainers.

The formal training takes one weekend, though most students choose to take an additional weekend to develop their boat handling skills.
