Course Provider public visibility

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Friday, 18th January 2019 @ 12:03pm

As of yesterday, there was only 2 Course providers in Essex with visibility to the public who may be looking for Start, Discover and Explore awards. Today there are 3. I spoke with Russ Smith BC Area Development officer who advised. 

"Looks like you need to Tick a box to say you are happy to be shown as a provider
To get on the list you have to Log in to your British Canoeing  Membership portal , go to “My Profile” and click on “Additional Details”  here you will find the Coach update section at the bottom , here you can see if you have ticked Y/N  to being shown on the Provider Finder , if No but you want to be , you can click on “update my Information”  and change your info so you will be shown on the  Go Paddling provider list"


So if you wish to have your provider details as a Coach made public you need to opt in via the BC web site, please pass this message on to all Club Coaches..
