Skills and knowledge are lost over time unless a person actively works to maintain them. The best way to demonstrate that your skills and knowledge are current is to maintain your qualification. Re-registration is part of the continuing education of Canoeing Instructors and Guides. Its purpose is to:
All Australian Canoeing Instructor, Guide, Leader and Lifeguard Awards expire after a term of three (3) years. To re-register, the holder must be able to demonstrate that they have maintained a level of competency equivalent to or above the qualification that they hold.
To re-register complete this form...... this will extend the expiry date of your award by 3 years
Instructors, Guides, Leaders and Lifeguards applying for re-registration must submit the application and all required information to Australian Canoeing. Activities that are acceptable for re-registration purposes have been listed in various categories in the table found here....
To be successfully re-registered, Instructors, Guides, Leaders and Lifeguards must show sufficient involvement in a range of canoeing activities in the preceding three years to gain a minimum of 100 points. Activities cannot be counted for credit in more than one category (instruction, training, personal paddling, etc.). Only activities from the last 12 months can count towards the 100 points (but evidence must be proveided that you have paddled throughout the last 3 years).
For activities less than a full day, a half-day will be counted (1-3 hrs = 1/2 day, 3.5 - 8 hrs is a full day). This would include shorter trips or periods of instruction as well as competitive events and meetings
For people who hold more than one accreditation (Sea Kayak, Canoe, Kayak) the minimum requirements in Category 2 - Personal Paddling must be met for each. Instructors in more than one type of craft need only meet the 100-point minimum requirement.
Additionally, log entries for Category 3 – Instruction should show evidence of instruction in each type of accreditation for which re-registration is sought.
Assessor awards are automatically renewed concurrently with your highest instructional award. Assessors must complete the Assessor section in the renwal form.
NOTE: To remain an assessor with the release of the Sports Industry Training Package SIS09 (ACAS 11), Assessors will be required to hold the TAA in workplace assessment.
