Otter Bar is offering an ACA (American Canoe Association) Level 4 Whitewater Kayak Instructor Certification Workshop this Spring, 2015 What is Included: - Lodging at Otter Bar Lodge, arriving Saturday, April 25, 2015 after 6:00PM. Departing Saturday, May 2 no later than 12:00 PM. - Three meals per day for participants and instructors - 2 head instructors and potentially one assistant – Ben Morton will be one of the lead instructors. Participants: 10 – 12 General Information: The course would be run in a similar fashion to a normal week at Otter Bar. The first half of the week will be run as an instructor development workshop. During this portion of the week the instructors would emphasize technical skill development, and strategies to teaching kayaking from flat water through class III. The second half of the week would be the instructor certification exam portion of the course. During this portion the students will be given assigned teaching topics to present to their peers and instructors as well as opportunities to manage their peers in class III whitewater. No certification is guaranteed, but all participants will leave the course with an "action plan" for continued development (regardless of what certification they receive). Other Info: All participants will be required to become ACA members ($40 annual fee) and pay SEIC dues ($25 annually). This will be outside of the course cost and they will be emailed two weeks prior to the course with specific instructions on how to pay these fees. A list of what to bring to your week will be sent to you upon payment. Your payment is due March 1, 2015. This will facilitate Otter Bar knowing how many students to ACA instructors we will need. You can sign-up on our website: under menu heading: 'Dates & Sign-ups'. After we receive this form via our email, we will expect a check for $950.00 from you made out to Otter Bar Lodge. After receiving this, we will send you a receipt and more information regarding the course, the lodge, directions and what to bring with you. Ben Morton teaches many ACA Level 4 Whitewater Kayak Instructor Certification Workshops all over the world. He is a highly regarded instructor in this field. Upon completion of the course you will have the information and skill evaluations of what you have accomplished and where you need to go from here in your kayak teaching.
