This is an ACA Level 4 Coastal Kayaking Instructor Certification Workshop (ICW) for existing L-3 instructors who wish to upgrade to L-4 certification. The four-day Instructor Certification Workshop is designed for current instructors to learn about the differences between L-3 and L-4 certification and instruction, and then go through the certification “examination” of teaching L-4 skills in L-4 conditions.
Note, in order to participate you must meet the requirements for aspiring L-4 instructors, found here. The workshop is a mix of classroom and on-water participation and instructor candidates will be assigned teaching topics in advance . This event can also serve as an instructor update for L-4s who need re-certification.
This course will be taught by Tom Noffsinger and Dale Williams, in the Eastern Shore of Virginia area, just north of Hampton Roads. Lodging will be provided at a nominal additional cost.
Note, there is a max of 10 participants, and this course is expected to fill up early, so don’t wait to enroll! A 50% deposit is required to secure your spot. Deposits are refundable until July 1.
The ICW is $500 for the four days plus a share of the lodging, estimated to be around $50/night for four nights. Lodging is in a rental house, with full kitchen.
