BCU Level 3 - Surf (old scheme)

Purpose & Remit

A BCU Level 3 surf coach can work in moderate water conditions in the surf (up to 3') and can assess 1, 2 and 3 star awards (to assess the new 2 star award you must also hold 2 star in canoe or the new 2 star).

What can I do next?

As described above, a BCU Level 3 surf coach can work in moderate surf conditions and are qualified to assess 1 star, 2 star and 3 star surf awards as well as the PaddlePower and PaddleSport awards. In order to provide the new star awards, coaches must complete the star award assessor registration form (please also note that to assess the new 2 star award you must also hold 2 star in canoe or the new 2 star). You will continue to be able to work within this remit and assess the star awards for which you have registered for as long as you remain current.

For details of development pathways from BCU Level 3, please see this page.
