"Now that I'm a Certified Instructor..."
This is your first chance to make a great impression. Your profile includes information for your online directory listing and will be what people see when they look for you on the site. You get to choose what information to publish to show the world who you are, so be thoughtful about how you want to represent yourself. Most instructors enter their contact information, a picture, and short bio that outlines their teaching and related experiences.
You can teach through sporting goods or skate retailers, community centers, Parks and Recreation departments, local universities or community colleges, health clubs and skate schools, and as a free-lance Certified Instructor.
The Press Release is a promotional tool for you to use in your community. Fill in your name and any other appropriate information and submit it to your local newspapers and sports publications. Submit it to skate clubs or your local YMCA and health club for release in their membership publications.
The Rules of the Road can be a very effective handout for your students. You can make them available at special events, retailers and classes so that students will be reminded of the standards of in line safety etiquette. You can also attach your business to promote your lessons.
You may use ICP logos for promotional materials: website, flyers, advertisements, special events, correspondence, newsletters, etc. as long as your certification is valid (See FAQ “Do I need to pay an Annual registration Fee?” below.) Not only is the logo recognized by the international skating community; it also lend credibility to you as a certified instructor who promotes safe skating.
When wearing any shirt or uniform bearing the ICP Mark (logo) we ask that you where full protective gear. Those certified through the ICP set themselves apart from other instructors by not only giving the highest quality inline skating lessons but by modeling safe skating practices such as wearing protective gear.
Yes, all instructors need to register annually to be listed on the ICP Global Instructor Directory, to use the ICP Mark (logo) on their uniform, website and promotional materials, and to take advantage of “instructor only offers”, etc.
For 2015, newly certified instructors will be considered “Active” and in good standing with a full profile on the ICP Global Instructor Directory and all instructor benefits until 31 December 2016. After that time, instructors are subject to an “Annual Registration fee” and continuing education requirements to remain in “Active” status. For 2015, the Annual Registration fee is $40 USD.
All instructors must subscribe to the ICP E-Learning Academy for $10 which will give access to the platform for the calendar year. For 2015, the ICP E-Learning Academy is where all instructors can take a “FREE” Level 1 Review course, which is worth 1.0 continuing education credits (CEC) and satisfies the requirements for the 2015 calendar year. We are very pleased to offer this digital learning platform and are currently developing additional courses and programs that will be available soon! Click here for Step by Step instructions on how to subscribe to the ICP E Learning Academy.
