This is an ACA L-4 Skills Assessment conducted by L-5 instructor Tom Noffsinger during the Kiptopeke Sea Kayak Symposium. The assessment is for current or aspiring L-4 paddlers who wish to have a clear understanding of their current skill level in kayaking. A successful L-4 assessment is also a prerequisite for aspiring L-4 ACA instructors.
Please register for this course through the Kiptopeke Sea Kayak Symposium registration process with Cross Currents Sea Kayaking – expected to open in May. Contact Tom Noffsinger if you have questions.
ACA Assessment courses have been developed as a tool to allow paddlers a clear progression of skill development. Courses provide progression in skills and paddling venues associated with specific disciplines and paddlecraft. Upon successful completion of each Skills Assessment checklist, your Instructor will submit the paperwork and you will receive official documentation of your level of skill from the ACA National Office.
Note: to receive Skills Assessment documentation, you must be a current ACA member.
