The ACA coastal kayak level skills assessments help you track your progress as a paddler, and give others a reliable indication of your preparedness for trips and further trainings. They also help set realistic goals towards professional guiding or instructor certification.

The skills training and assessment focus only on the core technical skill at their set levels 1-4. Assessments are ideal for club paddlers, seasonal camp staff and waterfront managers who do not need an instructor certification but do need to show a level of paddling proficiency for employment, group management and safety awareness.

Skills assessments are required pre requisites to participating in Level 3-5  Instructor Development Workshops.
