IISA / ICP CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS IN AUSTRALIA

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

Each year, the Inline Certification Program creates national and international test sites and conducts community-based clinics for inline skaters who want to become certified inline instructors. Clinics are conducted by national examiners who have demonstrated superior ability as skaters and instructors. ICP clinics use a consistent, comprehensive and tested program for inline instruction, based on a standardised format of teaching progressions and terminology. Once certified, skaters join a growing organisation of inline instructors who bring a standardised, skill building approach to educating inline skaters throughout the world.

The clinic includes classroom work, teaching seminars held on skates, a written test and a practical exam in which instructors are scored while teaching a class. Skating skills are tested at each level. In addition, round table discussions on skate bans, safety issues and getting started occur throughout the weekend.

LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION is for the entry-level instructor who wants to teach the fundamentals of recreational inline skating based on a standardised format of teaching. Instructors are qualified to teach such things as moving, stopping and turning.

LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATION is for the experienced Level 1 Instructor who wishes to enhance class-handling skills, problem solving and intermediate-level skill development. Level 2 Instructors teach skills such as backward movement, alternative stopping, cross-overs and street-skating awareness.

A quarterly newsletter keeps ICP instructors informed on significant product developments, event dates, national inline news, new teaching methods and better ways to organize and promote classes.

NOTE: Not everyone will necessarily want to be an instructor but with their
certification they will learn many new ways of applying their own skills and will have a full understanding of all basic concepts involved in increasing skating ability. Those teaching / coaching skating in Australia are well advised to take out liability insurance and having your certification can help greatly with this. Those who love their skating will love the ICP program and make many contacts all over the world who also take skating very seriously. 

NOTE: For aggressive inline skaters.... IISA / ICP certification is also sought by top skate parks such as Camp Woodward. In Australia we also have an Ausport accredited program run by Skate Australia for coaches wishing to teach aggressive skating.
