American Canoe Association
Instructor Certification Workshops

Attending an Instructor Certification Workshop is like going to SUP Camp.  Immerse yourself in SUP for 3-4 days and leave the course completely fired up for more.  These intensive multi-day workshops polish your personal paddling skills and spend ample time reviewing strokes & maneuvers.  You'll cover equipment design & construction, paddling concepts, teaching styles & models, leadership, safety & rescue, trip planning, video review and much more.  Limited to five candidates per Instructor Trainer.  The true value of this course is the training itself.  The most successful Level Two candidates have well rounded standup paddling experience in a variety of conditions before taking the course.  Less experienced paddlers often earn Level One certifications, but attendance alone does not guarantee certification.  Contact us with questions.   

Pre-Requisites:  Over 18, first aid & cpr certification, ACA Membership
