ACA Coastal Kayak Workshops for Guides
Becoming a Coastal Kayak Guide combines two ACA tracks: Instructor and Trip Leader.
This is the perfect professional training for a Coastal Kayak Guide on the Great
Lakes and beyond -
One part of becoming a Coastal Kayak Guide is the ACA Level 2 Instructor Certification
The other part of becoming a Coastal Kayak Guide is the ACA Level 3 Trip Leader
Assessment process -
A period of time between the training and testing provides the candidate with time to develop and refine their Instructor & Trip Leader skills. In our experience, this leads to greater skilled and more confident candidates who have better success when testing out.
1) The ACA Coastal Kayaking Level 3 Trip Leader started in 2016.
2) The ACA made changes in 2016 to the Coastal Kayaking Instructor Workshops.
3) Given the above, we developed this combination to replace the previously offered Instructor workshops. We believe this combination provides the training best suited to the needs of outfitters and clubs for their programs.
