The ACA Level 2: Essentials of Kayak Touring certification qualifies you to teach introductory kayak skills in a variety of kayaks (sea, river, recreational, sit-on-top) in a protected and calm water location. This three-day certification program is a great opportunity for club paddlers, livery instructors, and camp waterfront staff to add kayaking to their camp programs. This certification is appropriate for instructors who limit their teaching to inland lakes.
This 3-day program is focused on training future instructors to teach the skills in the ACA L2 Essentials of Kayak Touring Instructor criteria. To get the most from the program, this program is intended for paddlers possessing L2 personal paddling skills and knowledge at a minimum.
