Calling all ACA Certified Coastal Kayak Instructors!
In case you missed it, the SEIC and ACA Board of Directors met February 20-22, 2014 in Columbus, Georgia.
The Coastal Kayak Committee proposed changes to the Level 5: Advanced Open Water Coastal Kayaking Instructor Criteria and the Level 3: Coastal Kayaking Skills Assessment – and both were approved!
- The Level 3: Coastal Kayak Skills Assessment venue conditions have been changed to mirror those outlined in the Level 3: Coastal Kayaking Instructor Criteria, requiring two of the four listed conditions to be present during the course.
- Level 4: Open Water Coastal Kayaking instructors who wish to upgrade to Level 5 now have a reporting requirement in place of the 2-year waiting requirement.
What does this mean for you?
If you plan to offer a Level 3: Coastal Kayaking Skills Assessment, you’ll need to become familiar with the assessment document.
If you are an aspiring Level 5: Advanced Open Water Coastal Kayaking Instructor, please review the new instructor criteria document.
The ACA wishes you a fun and successful paddling season!
