"I am a former Short Track Speed Skating Winter Olympian (represented Hong Kong) and I took this course as I was launching my Hong Kong Skating School. I wanted to take this course to prepare myself better as knowing how to skate does not necessarily mean knowing how to teach. Additionally, with my experience mostly being on the ice, I wanted to learn the methods of teaching inline as well which now forms part of our offering since ice is difficult to get access to in Hong Kong. This course was helpful in making me more aware about possible different learning behaviors of students, provided insight on how to structure a class and ideas on progression of skills and how to break them down for students to grasp more easily. I am located in Hong Kong and I was able to take the ICP program online which made it much more convenient and doable while still being able to feel a sense of community with the rest of the students. ICP has wonderful examiners who teach with a lot of heart and I would recommend this program to those seeking to further their skills as coach."
"I thoroughly recommend the online course. It breaks down the learning sequence of skills for beginners, so that their initial attempts result in success, and gives them a great foundation for further skills development. Prior to the course, I had years of experience skating and teaching (in other fields), however I struggled to teach others my skating skills. Now I have a lot more confidence due to the ICP teaching model. I enjoyed the combination of Zoom sessions and self-video sessions. The Zoom sessions allowed for discussion with the examiners and other candidates, everyone was extremely helpful and supportive and we were able to get some great teaching ideas. The self-video sessions really allowed me to have some time for self-assessment of my skills. By the end of the course, I knew the teaching manual back-to-front, it is a very helpful resource."
"After attending the ICP Level 1 course, I applied what I had learned immediately with my students. It has transformed my short-term skating classes to now a longer, more structured framework. The students benefit through a better foundation and the instructors in our skate school are more professional. I am presently applying ICP teaching methodology to surf skateboard classes and having a lot of success!"
"Well - I loved it! I am passionate about skating and getting things right, this is exactly what the course made me do! It was fantastic to meet other people from around the world with the same drive. For someone who has no experience with an online platform, I had to learn as much about that as I had to learn about skating, which was an added challenge. However, with the help of my examiners, I managed and passed my exam with flying colours! I enjoyed the way we learned to build a lesson. That was great! It helps me build every lesson. I’m sure this will come in very handy for all my lessons in the future and is hugely appreciated!"
"I just finished with ICP Level 1 (Jan 2024) and I must admit that it was very helpful. I learned a bunch of new things and the right way of teaching others to inline skate. I am beyond grateful for being part of ICP. A big thanks to the Director, Kris Fondran who with the right guidance, knowledge and way of instructing taught me so many lessons."
