Level 4 Whitewater Kayak: This is an instructor development workshop and an instructor certification exam (IDW/ICE) for level 4 Whitewater. ACA courses are structured for several levels of certification for instance: Level 2 Essentials of River Paddling, Level 3 River Kayaking, and L4 Whitewater. Our courses are targeted at instructors who expect to be teaching on whitewater. However, this is no guarantee that you will earn that level of certification. Not everyone will receive “Full” whitewater instructor certification, especially if this is their first exposure to formal paddling instruction. No worries! There are means for upgrading within a year.

Instructor Updates: Current ACA instructors may join the first two (and on approval last two) days of the class to fulfill every 4 year update requirements. (on space available basis).

Course Locations (Depending on flows, weather, and other logistics)
Flatwater: Clackamette Lake or the Willamette River
Class I/II = Clackamas River
Class III = Bull Run River Slalom Course. Expect river temperatures of 38 to 48 degrees and air temps of 50 to 60 degrees (As always, be prepared for cold, rainy weather).

Prerequisite Skills: Class II-III paddling skills are required along with a solid river roll. Bring a boat you will use for teaching. (Generally a creek or river running boat is best).
