ACA Kayak Instructor Development and Certification programs

I have several ACA kayak Instructor Development and Certification programs pending. Most paddlers in the courses are interested in improving their own technique. Many also want to organize their thoughts about the sport so they can teach friends or professionally. Register with the host organization.
More info on my courses here.

I am interested in possibly taking the course in Salida, Co. What exactly does pending mean? Is there a chance the course might not happen?

Likely to happen

The ACA requires that Instructor Development & Certification programs have a minimum of 5 people. So, yes, the class does depend on registration. That said, my courses have been full to the brim (9-10 instructor candidates) over the last few years. Register for the course with the host.

It's an amazing course with an amazing instructor! it is a great way to tune your own technique. Well worth it.
Also industry standard if you want to kayak instruct commercially.
