Guide Courses Pending Accreditation

The following organizations have provided ACSKG accredited guide training courses in the past.  To regain their ACSKG accreditation, the course instructors must renew or obtain ACSKG Guide Instructor certification.

Courses pending ACSKG accreditation will be listed here for several months.  If instructors do not obtain or renew certification, their course will be removed from this website.  Course providers may then start over by reapplying to become ACSKG accredited.

Leadership Course Equivalency

Paddle Canada instructors as well as
SKGABC & CFOKE course graduates
may apply for ACSKG equivalency.

Leadership courses certified by SKGABC, CFOKE or other reputable sea kayak guide organizations may be eligible for ACSKG endorsement.  Graduates of endorsed courses may apply for ACSKG certification.
