A skills course can cover all or part of the course outline and are tailored to fit the needs of the participants. Skills courses do not have to be taken in a successive order. At the conclusion of a skills course, participants may receive a participation card.
ACA Assessment courses have been developed as a tool to allow paddlers a clear progression of skill development. Courses provide progression in skills and paddling venues associated with specific disciplines and paddlecraft. Upon successful completion of each Skills Assessment checklist, your Instructor will submit the paperwork and you will receive official documentation of your level of skill from the ACA National Office.
Note: to receive Skills Assessment documentation, you must be a current ACA member.
The ACA Rafting Skills Assessment courses are currently under development.
