A professional training course using the best teaching method

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 at an IKO affiliated Center and is taught by IKO Examiner Vincent Herbillon. 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.

What will  you learn during an ITC?

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.Because students safety is our priority, the ITC is hosted at an IKO affiliated Center where your Examiner will train you interactively on all aspects of safety, practical environment, analysis, technique and teaching psychology. Also, live situation modules are held to prepare you for real teaching sessions.

Completion of the Instructor Training Course

If you successfully pass, your 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 all the ITC modules have not been completed, you may receive internship 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. Internship is the best way to complete your training while earning teaching practice.
