Thank you for you interest in joining us for Coastal Kayaking, American Canoe Association, Instructor Update/Instructor Certification/Development Workshop (ICW/IDW). As part of your career to becoming a sea kayak instructor, I will provide you the means of beginning your path towards becoming an instructor by attending this as a means of L2 Instructor Certification Workshop and get you on your way as an instructor. If you wish to maintain your standing as a current kayak Instructor, this will count as an Update as part of your Level 2 or 3 Instructor maintenance criteria. If you are a Level 2 Coastal Kayak Instructor or previously had a Level 3 IDW, you may choose to utilize this course as an upgrade from a Level 2 to Level 3.

I will be your host and trainer for the weekend, while Ben Lawry (ITE) observes me. I too am on a path to become an Instructor Trainer (IT) to deliver skills and training to others who also share a passion to become instructor.
The content of this course will be three fold:
  1. provide an Instructor Certification Workshop (ICW) for new Level 2 Coastal Kayak Instructor candidates
  2. provide an update for Level 2 and 3 Coastal Kayak Instructors
  3. provide an opportunity for upgrade from Level 2 to Level 3 Coastal Kayak Instructor Candidates

Class dates will be August 2-6;

2016-06-07 08_50_14-GreenshotLocation will be on the Bayfield Peninsula (northern Wisconsin) of Lake Superior. This location will allow for flexibility to experience environmental conditions appropriate for our class.
