skill level:   intermediate
ages:   adult
price:   $475.00
deposit:   $200.00
prerequisite:   Previous formal kayak instruction and solid kayaking skills

As more people discover kayaking, there is an increasing need for qualified instructors who can help paddlers develop the basic skills they need to be safe on the water. 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. A great way for camp waterfront staff to add kayaking to their camp programs, this certification is also appropriate for instructors who limit their teaching to inland lakes. John Browning, Instructor Trainer.
