ACA Skill Assessments
Portland Paddle offers American Canoe Association sea kayak skills assessments for levels 1 through 4
Portland Paddle offers American Canoe Association sea kayak skills assessments for levels 1 through 4. ACA Assessments can serve as proof of meeting a certain skill threshold when renting boats and gear, for entering certain events like adventure races, and for participating in ACA skills workshops. They also provide you with an objective third party review of your skill set, helping you to assess what paddling conditions you can handle and where you might need improvement.
Assessments are valuable for any paddler as a check in. ACA members will also receive a certificate proving that they have met the criteria necessary and completed the assessment. Please visit the ACA website for additional details as to what each level of certification entails, or give us a call to chat!
