How it works

The Packraft online courses ( IPIA ) offer a series of curriculum levels designed to improve your packrafting skills and knowledge. This will be facilitating the development of special skills, and also provides a pathway to becoming a packrafting professional. 

Each curriculum level  has both an online course and a practical training requirement. The online course is available from this website and is taken prior to attending the practical training sessions. They are offered by IPIA instructors around the world. 

The packraft online course can be taken as a stand-alone course for those without access to the practical training. It is highly recommended that you seek professional practical training as this will give you the full value of the course.
