    Is this the same course that has been offered in the past? Or is this a more advanced level? Why do we need a more advanced level?

    yes.  L4 is Whitewater Kayaking on ACA’s span of kayak instruction.

    River Kayaking

    This class is “up to” Level 4, so students can actually qualify as Level 3 or Level 2 Instructors if they don’t qualify as L4.

    Still confused. What do most of us instructors have? L3 or L4

    I think it’s on your card, but I think most of you are L4 – Whitewater Kayak.

    You could also log onto your account at ACA & check, I think…  I could be wrong about that (but it would make sense…).

    What time does the Friday class start?  How long on Sunday does the class last?  I am interested but may not be able to make it work for this coming weekend.

    Thank you,

    John

    John –

    Just got the schedule (except for this Friday).  But I think this Friday night’s class runs from 5-9; the uncertainty is that Ty is trying to locate a classroom.

    Sat-Sun 9am-6pm at Simpson Lake

    Fri Apr 13 5-9 pm (at the Saint)

    Sat-Sun 9am-6pm

      There is a community center in Valley Park, William Brignole Center.  St Louis Canoe and Kayak club has their meetings there.  I don’t have any contact information, but maybe they’d work with Ty if it’s available.
