The WRF has developed a Training Programme most as complete as possible, covering all the aspect of the rafting sport for its river guides and coaches, from recreational to competitive activities, on all class of river difficulties that can be safely run.
The aim of the Training Programme is to implement a federal worldwide system based on the competences and knowledges of the different levels of river rafting guides and coaches.
Bearing in mind that the Council of the European Union’s Recommendations on promoting health- enhancing physical activity across sectors show that the sport sector is an employment-intensive growing industry and can contribute to addressing youth unemployment, this Training Programme represents a tool for facilitating young people's access to the labour market and implement the dual career goal for the paddle sport athletes. A further important goal, which is implemented through the development of the WRF Programme, is the international mobility for the technicians/athletes; in fact, this element is encouraged by the rafting’s seasonality due the weather events according to the period of the year. For this reason, rafting guides can work and promote paddle sport in different continent in the same year.
