Water Activity Licence Registries
Scouts SA issues Water Awareness Certificates and Water Activity Licenses, both of which are valid for a period of five years. Activities involving swimming and barrel rafting require a water awareness certificate. Any form of boating requires a valid Water License, which is applicable to the type of boat and the water body.
The Safe Scouting Policy requires each region is required to maintain an active registry of its Water Activity License holders, these can be viewed by clicking on the relevant option below.

Scouts South Africa has adopted a CASS (Continuous Assessment) Programme to ensure that Water Activity License Holders are keeping current in both skills and knowledge. Water Activity License are valid for 5 years from date of issue and may be renewed by attending the course every 5 years, or submitting a renewal application under the CASS Programme. If the regional Water Activities Committee find that the hours have been satisfactorily completed, then the License(s) will be renewed for a further 5 years . If the hours have not been completed or there has been misconduct the renewal will either be denied, or additional criteria will be put in place.
