This American Canoe Association training and assessment consists of educational sessions that focus on coaching knowledge and technical knowledge, on-water skill development and refinement, and practical teaching and leadership scenarios. There is tremendous value and high-quality outcomes from the sharing and exchange of professional experience and feedback from instructor candidates and the instructor trainer during these trainings. This training and assessment will be productive and valuable whether you are striving to earn a credential for an employment opportunity, interested in learning more about helping your friends get into the sport, or intrigued by the role of coaching within this sport.
That being said, this is an instructor certification workshop and while we fully expect 'development' to happen within all the participants, it's important that individuals arrive with a strong foundation of personal paddling experience and a thorough familiarity with the ACA SUP Instructor Criteria.
For additional insight into the standards and criteria for the Level 1 or Level 2 Stand Up Paddleboard Instructor Certifications please visit the ACA's website.
