River Safety and River Rescue Course subsidies of $100 are available to Whitewater NZ members, thanks to the generous support of Water Safety NZ. You can join a course organised by the NZ Kayak School or contact any NZOIA kayak level 2 instructor to run a course for you. Read Course details and subsidy forms. These courses have great content; if you have never taken one there's no time like the present! If you have taken one, refreshers are a good idea.
