ICP Level 1 Certification

ICP Level 1 Certification

This level is the first certification for new instructors and teaches you the basics of teaching using the beginner skills syllabus.

The course consists of two components; a skating skills workshop held prior to the weekend course, and the weekend course itself. This lasts 2.5 days (Friday evening to Sunday evening).

The next weekend course in London will be on 8th – 10th September 2017

The next skills session is on Friday 8th September,  2.00pm – 5pm 

Theory session: Friday 8th September, 6.00pm – 9.00pm.
Location: To be confirmed.

Weekend Session: 9th – 10th September
The Saturday session (8.30am start) will cover skating skills and teaching practice using the Teaching Method. The written theory exam will follow in the evening at a venue to be arranged nearer the time.

During the Sunday session (9am start), your skating skills will be assessed and you will also undergo your teaching exam. Afterwards, it’s back inside for results and feedback.

Your course fee includes your membership fee to ICP-International for the year in which you qualified (ending December).
