American Canoe Association (ACA) Instructor Certification Workshops (ICWs) are the next step for individuals wishing to teach paddling technique and skill refinement. An ACA instructor certification course consists of both an Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) and an Instructor Certification Exam (ICE). When the IDW and ICE are combined into a single event it is titled as “Instructor Certification Workshop” (ICW). Participants attending an IDW, or ICW, will have the paddling skills, technical knowledge, and rescue ability commensurate with the course level prior to attending.

The ICW is designed to refine and polish the paddling skills of the participants to provide a clear model to present to students. Additionally, the ICW will explore teaching techniques appropriate to paddlesports, as well as group management, leadership, and assessment skills. Candidates will be evaluated on their technical skills, their teaching skills, and their interpersonal skills. Successful candidates will be certified as an ACA Instructor at the appropriate level and will be certified to teach ACA courses of instruction up to their level of certification. Persons desiring to become ACA Instructors should thoroughly review the instructor criteria, as well as the courses up to the level of certification being sought, which are detailed on the ACA website (americancanoe.org).

Attendees at an IDW or ICW are required to be full members of the ACA at the start of the course. Upon successful completion of the ICE/ICW, membership in the ACA’s Safety Education and Instruction Council is required to receive certification. Attendees are also required to obtain the ACA Instructor’s Manual (available in the eStore of the ACA website) and to maintain first aid and CPR certification. Instructors must be 18 years of age. Persons within 12 months of their 18th birthday may attend an instructor certification course, and if successfully completes the course will have their certification “deferred” until their 18th birthday.

The L2: Essentials of Kayak Touring courses are designed to teach paddlers to safely and enjoyably kayak on lakes, calm protected ocean environments, and other flatwater settings (protected water near shore with winds up to 10 knots, waves up to one foot (0.3 meters), and current up to one knot).

At the conclusion of the ICW successful candidates will be “passed” at the workshop level, passed at a lower level with an action plan to complete to upgrade to the next level, or be “passed” at a lower level. The final certification depends on the performance in the above identified areas of competence.

— Full ACA membership and membership in the ACA's Safety Education Instruction Committee (SEIC)
