Over the last 25 years, the number of inline skaters has exploded around the world. Each year millions take to the streets, skate paths, local parks, etc., to participate in one of the fasted growing recreational activities. To foster the growth of inline skating as a safe and fun activity, the Inline Certification Program (ICP) was formed.
The ICP is devoted to the development of professional inline skating instructors so skaters around the world can receive top quality instruction. Through Certified Instructors, the ICP provides a consistent educational framework using proven skill building methods.
Each year, the ICP visits test sites in countries all over the world and conducts local clinics for skaters that endeavor to become Certified Instructors. Clinics are conducted by ICP Examiners who have demonstrated superior ability as both skaters and instructors. Already thousands around the world have become certified through the ICP.
All educational programs of the ICP are managed and administered by individual examiners throughout the world that work together regionally and report directly to the ICP International office. This structure promotes networking between all international inline educational programs and allows for the sharing of resources and lays the foundation for a unique skater’s organization.
Through the continuous development of the inline educator (instructor, volunteer, coach), skaters will be be exposed to the safest, most effective skill building methodology available. This continuity of instructional content and technique will provide a consistent educational framework for inline skating around the world.
