I’m sort of in the middle of trying to learn how to teach in-line skating to beginners.
I’ve skated myself now for about five years. I love it and I want others to enjoy it too. So last year I considered getting ICP1 level certified. The Inline Certification Program is an international organisation that is “devoted to the development of professional inline skating instructors”. I only considered it last year, but didn’t do it. I am now though, and I tell you something – it’s tough!
After the two hour evaluation session I found that I had loads of bad habits. Now I’m putting in loads of practice trying to fix them. Next weekend I’m down in London again for the course proper – two days of intensive skating.
I’ll post back on how I do…
