The principal aim of Level 3 is to prepare instructor candidates for a professional career in the inline skating industry. The ideal candidate is an experienced Level 2 ICP certified instructor who is looking to further develop their capacity as a teacher while expanding or starting their own inline skating school.
Emphasis is placed on training course participants in “teaching-to-teach” by further developing their understanding of teaching methodology and skill development relative to inline skating. This indepth exploration will give them the "eye" and experience to train other instructors, and in the process, become better instructors themselves. In addition, candidates will have the opportunity to learn the basics of various skating disciplines, simple marketing initiatives to promote their school, and develop their own skate school curriculum based on personal strengths as well as local needs and interests.
Activities, Workshops & Lecturers will include the following*:
*These offerings are subject to change based on the strengths of the individual examiers and the expressed interests of the collective candidate group.
Level 1 and Level 2 skating skills are used in studying the in-depth aspects of skating instruction. The Level 3 course runs over 5 days and includes 6 hours of skating and 1.5 hours of classroom work per day.* The last day is comprised of “teaching-to-teach” exams and a final skating skills exam. Skating proficiency is expected in all Level 1 & Level 2 skills as well as the "additional" skills from Level 2 (See below). For the practical teaching assessment any skill from Level 1 or Level 2 may be tested and a high level of performance is expected.
* Number of days and hours per day subject to change depending on program location.
