ACA Level 3 Trip Leader Training/Assessment - Ellsworth, ME


The Level 3 Coastal Kayak Trip Leader Award is a new program being offered by the ACA.  During this 3-day combined training and assessment, candidates will be exposed to concepts and techniques for safely managing a group of sea kayakers while exploring tidal coastal environments.  Successful candidates will develop and demonstrate skills to properly plan trips, choose venues, assess a group's abilities, manage play, and resolve problems that arise in ACA L3 Coastal Kayaking conditions (10-15 knots wind, 1-2 foot seas, 1-2 foot surf, 1-2 knots current).  All candidates will leave with a comprehensive action plan for continued development of their leadership and personal skills.  More information about the L3 CKTL program can be obtained here.
