ACA L-4 Instructor Certification Update

Last month I completed my ACA L-4 (open water) Coastal Kayak Instructor certification update in Ocean City with Tom Nickels and the crew from Potomac Pattlesports.  There were 12 of us on the water all together for two days of aggressive paddling, lesson plans and some big surf.

Instructors go through a lot of training, and this was a great venue to put leadership and advance kayaking skills to work with some up-and-coming instructors.  For more on the ACA’s Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) and Instructor Certification Exams (IDE), visit the ACA web site.
