This course is open to currently certified ACA Level 1: Introduction to Kayaking Instructors seeking their required Instructor Update and instructor candidates looking for their first ACA Instructor Certification.


This is an Instructor Certification Workshop - there will be continual development of skills, both paddling and teaching skills, as well as continual assessment of those skills. There is not time for you to learn of the skills included in the Instructor Criteria and learn how to teach and provide effective feedback to students for all of these skills.


Instructor Candidates are expected to come into the course with an ability to perform all of the paddling and rescue skills listed on the Instructor Criteria.
