ACA Level 4: Open Water Coastal Kayak Instructor Certification Workshop & Update:
San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and the Marin Headlands are perfect locations for open water coastal kayaking with strong tidal currents, powerful swells and changeable weather conditions providing an abundance of learning opportunities and easy access to Level 4 conditions.
Sean Morley and Jennifer Yearley invite you to participate in a comprehensive, informative and challenging four days of instructor development that will reinvigorate your teaching, broaden your coaching and provide an authentic assessment process.
This course is for existing Level 3 Coastal Kayak Instructors seeking to upgrade to Level 4. Please check the ACA Instructor Criteria to be sure that you are eligible. Existing L4 OWCK Instructors may take this course as an Update to meet the ACA’s Instructor Maintenance Requirements. Please CONTACT us if you have any questions.

This is a four day ‘formative assessment’ process that includes training and assessment in all aspects of coastal kayak instruction. We will be paddling and teaching in tidal current up to 4 knots, wind up to 20 knots and surf up to 4 feet. We will be learning how to teach navigation, mitigate risk and manage incidents and provide effective coaching in technique.

Closing date for registration is Friday, November 29th, 2019
