Waka Ama unit standards review

Tēnā koutou e ngā kaitiaki o Waka Ama.

Mā whero, mā pango ka oti ai te mahi.

This whakataukī or Māori proverb, refers to different peoples or groups cooperating and combining efforts to achieve their goals.

The following unit standards for Waka Ama have been reviewed:

Level 2
30810 Demonstrate and describe waka ama paddling and safety skills
30811 Demonstrate capsize drills for waka ama


Following a survey and Te Puna Whāngai (advisory group) hui, it is proposed that the unit standards are combined. Here is the draft unit standard. 

We welcome feedback on the proposed change. Responses can be sent to Ngarongoa Lentfer [email protected] by 7 July 2023. This will allow as many of you as possible to send us your thoughts.

Thank you for taking the time to consider these reviewed standards and please forward this message onto anyone in your networks that may be interested.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Noho ora mai.
