ACA Level 3 Skills Assessment
May 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$150
The ACA L3: Coastal Kayaking Skills Assessment is designed to fine tune evaluate a participant’s ability to perform all of the skills listed along with demonstrating an appropriate level of knowledge.
The assessment provides the participant with the opportunity to receive documentation of having achieved a certain level of paddling ability. Skills assessment is a required pre-requisite to participating in an Level 3 Instructor Development Workshop (ICW) and strongly advised for those attending a L1/L2 ICW.
This assessment will assess your paddling, safety, rescue skills, and technical knowledge as outlined in the ACA Level 3 Coastal Kayaking Skills Assessment Criteria Outline. Level 3 assessment requires at least two of the following conditions.
- 10-15 knot winds
- 1-2 foot seas
- 1-2 foot breaking waves
If we do not have the required conditions expected at our scheduled location on the class date, we may either opt to change venue to a more suitable location or run the course on an alternate date.
It is expected that participants interested in pursuing this award will have participated in a minimum of three, full day journeys e.g. longer than 8 nautical miles.
