ICP Level 3 Certification Program Details
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/Skate IA 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. All 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.
Candidates who successfully complete this course may be invited to enter our Apprentice Examiner Program.
