Overview

The American Canoe Association (ACA) Instructor Training Courses are designed to provide experienced paddlers with the tools needed to share their skills with others. ACA Certification is a two-part process: the Instructor Development Workshop (IDW) is an interactive learning/teaching exercise and the Instructor Certification Exam (ICE) is the formal evaluation of skills.

The IDW focuses on modeling effective instruction of the skills, knowledge, and techniques necessary for successful completion of the ICE (which is primarily an evaluation process). In other words, this first portion is designed to "teach you how to teach stand-up paddling" and the second portion will test you on your ability to do so. Each candidate will be assigned basic teaching topics and instruction methods. The instructor trainer will then critique candidates on his or her presentation skills, general knowledge, and stand up paddling ability.

Certification is based upon both paddling and teaching skills and is not guaranteed. The instructor trainer (IT) makes the final determination of whether a candidate may be certified, and if so, at which level: Intro to SUP, Essentials of SUP, or River SUP.
