There are many Outdoor Centres and activity providers across Scotland. The SCA operates British Canoeing's Quality Mark approval scheme (previously known as Approved Paddlesport Provider or Approved Centre). British Canoeing has responsibility to ensure those participating in the sport know exactly what qualifications; safety procedures and standards of competence are expected from the British Canoeing and from those Providers providing paddlesport activity. Having carried out an approval visit the SCA can recommend such providers. Find an Quality Mark Provider near you using the Club Finder.
