For the BCU Book

Call a kayak center that does BCU training for that. Start with Atlantic Kayak Tours in Peekskill NY, They are the BCU administrative center for North America. Preferred is email at Phone for off-season is (845) 246-2187, 9-6 Monday-Friday.
Of you want to get closer to where you are, I'd guess you could also get the book from Body, Boat and Blade on the west coast.

Go to AKT's site and spend some time anyway - it's a very rich and informative web presence and includes BCU as well as overall kayaking info.
