Find a Centre
There are many Outdoor Centres and Organisations across Scotland that provide a wide range of courses - from beginner to advanced level. The SCA operates British Canoeing's Quality Mark approval scheme, and as such we only recommend providers and centres that have been inspected and meet British Canoeing's strict standards.
The Quality Mark scheme assesses centres and providers on a number of points relating to safety, equipment, qualifications and competence; so by choosing a Quality Mark centre you can be assured that you will receive quality coaching from qualified coaches using suitable equipment.
To find your nearest Quality Mark Centre, visit the Clubs and Centres page.
Find a Course
There are a wide variety of courses happening throughout Scotland. The easiest way to find a course is to have a look at our Events Listings or Calendar, if you can't see the one you're looking for we recommend contacting your nearest Quality Mark Centre or a course provider (see below).
Find a Course Provider
If you wish to arrange your own course, why not contact a course provider directly to discuss?
The Course Provider directory is a searchable list of registered providers (tutors/assessors) of particular courses. You can access the directory by logging in to self-service. You may search by role or region to obtain contact details for the course provider.
Note - only course providers who meet the British Canoeing Coach Update criteria, and who have agreed to be listed in the directory will be shown.
