ACA Advanced Communications Workshop (ACW)

American Canoe Association Logo

One of two professional paddlesports instructor endorsements within the ACA Universal Paddling Program, the new ACA Advanced Communications Endorsement was designed for instructors, outfitters, recreation program managers, trip leaders, and all others who want to seamlessly integrate people with speech & language impairments, hearing impairments or deafness, visual impairments or blindness into paddlesports programs.  Advanced Communications Workshops provide a basic understanding of disabilities that affect communication and provides a toolbox of knowledge, techniques and strategies to enable successful integration. Current ACA Instructors will earn the Advanced Communications Endorsement upon successful completion.

Adaptive Expeditions will help organize an ACA ACW for your adaptive outdoor recreation program.  Adaptive Expeditions can provide this instructor credentialing course with a focus on adaptive kayaking, adaptive rafting, adaptive stand-up paddling, or adaptive canoeing. 

Please contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Please support our efforts to bring this training to other organizations around the world.
