Level 3: River Kayaking Instructor Certification Workshop (IDW/ICE)

Fall City, WA, USA

A 5-day ACA Level 3 River Kayaking Instructor Certification Workshop (ICW) focused on class 2-2+ rivers in the Greater Seattle Area. This workshop features two mandatory weekends: 1) a 3-day Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) on Friday, April 21 – Sunday, April 23 and 2) a 2-day Instructor Certification Exam (ICE) on Saturday, May 6 – Sunday, May 7. All 5 days are required to be eligible for certification, but participation doesn’t guarantee certification. This workshop is structured to allow instructor candidates time between the IDW and ICE to practice and prepare for the ICE between weekends. Instructor certifications are the next step for individuals wishing to teach class 2-2+ river kayaking technique and skill refinement to students. A key component that sets instructor certification apart from other course types is the evaluation of not only paddling skill and knowledge but also teaching ability, safety and rescue skills, group management, and judgement. Contact kyle@ballardkayak.com to register or schedule a conversation to chat about the workshop. If you’re looking to prepare for this course, I highly recommend working with a local ACA River Kayaking Instructor to complete an ACA Level 3 River Kayaking Skills Course or Skills Assessment.
