Before filling out the centre registration form below, please decide the category to which you are applying.
ISKGA Expedition Centres
An ISKGA Expedition centre runs a selection of ISKGA Approved expeditions, which are led by professional guides that have trained and assessed in the ISKGA guide system.
All ISKGA Expedition Centres run a selection of ISKGA Modules, such as Sea Survival courses, first aid programs and expedition skills training, to help fully prepare you for your first wilderness expedition. If you have never kayaked before, ISKGA Expedition centres can also deliver fundamental training up to level three, to ensure that you have the skills required to paddle effectively on the ocean and to expedition safely in remote wilderness marine environments.
The cost to register your centre with ISKGA is a £200.00 (annual fee).
ISKGA National Centre
If you wish to apply to become the ISKGA National Centre for your country, which is a centre that has been inspected by members of the I.S.K.G.A technical committee and will have been approved as an ISKGA National Training & Expedition Centre.
An I.S.K.G.A National Centre will be able to run the full spectrum of the ISKGA Modular system and wilderness expeditions utilising Trainers & guides who have completed the ISKGA guide training or have been approved as being at the appropriate level.
The ISKGA National Centre may also provide the full six week guide training programme for sea kayakers wishing to enter into the world of commercial sea kayak guiding. As an National Centre you will be able to use the ISKGA logo for marketing purposes and access the full network of ISKGA Centres to co-ordinate training opportunities and to help direct sea kayak guiding within your country. An ISKGA National centre must employ at least one ISKGA full time guide at the appropriate level for the courses and expeditions that they offer through that centre and that guide will help to facilitate and co-ordinate the training programs for your centre.
