About the course:
Are you ready to take the next step? Maybe you’ve been leading folks down the river for a while, or teaching friends to roll. Working for an American Canoe Association instructor certification will be as rewarding in the process as it is in benefits. Learning how to teach, relay information, and plan for safety will uncover as much for your own personal boating as it will for your future students and paddling partners.
