Do you want to unite your passion with your job? As an IKO Instructor, you will be eligible to teach kiteboarding around the world.
   

Description

The Instructor Training Course (ITC) is based on IKO kiteboard teaching methods, which are recognized as the international standard in kiteboard teaching. The ITC runs for 5-days and is taught by an Examiner. An Examiner is a professional who is in charge of your training, evaluation and certification as a new Instructor. ITCs are held with a maximum of 8 candidates.

Your Examiner will expand and transform your theoretical knowledge and practice level and turn these skills sets into a mastery of abilities so that you can teach while transferring your love and passion of the sport to others. Your Examiner will also train you interactively on all aspects of safety, practical environment, analysis, technique and teaching psychology. Live situation modules are held to prepare you for real teaching sessions.

If you successfully pass the training, you will be certified as an IKO Instructor level 1, and you will be able to run lessons fully and independently with two students and one kite at the same time.

In case not all the ITC modules have been completed, you may receive shadowing hours at the end of the ITC. This means that you will need to teach under the supervision of an Instructor level 2 or higher for a designated amount of time in order to complete your training and be validated as an Instructor. Shadowing is the best way to complete your training while earning teaching practice.

Note:

If you already have a VDWS, PASA, BKSA, FAV/FEV or FFVL/BPJEPS Instructor Certificate, you can participate in the ITC as well to get your IKO Kiteboard Instructor Certification. This course is called IKO Instructor Equivalency Course (IEC). Please let us know if this is the case and we will send you the information about the prerequisites.
