    To be eligible for certification as a Level 3 Instructor, you must attend all five days.  In order to enroll in the five day Level 3 Instructor Certification Workshop you must first successfully complete a Level 3: Coastal Kayaking skills assessment or Level 3: Coastal Kayak Trip Leader Assessment.
