The ICE is the final exam for instructor certification. Participation in the ICE does not guarantee certification. Candidates should be proficient in all skills at their level of desired instruction before attending the ICE. Throughout the certification process, candidates will be evaluated and must be able to perform all of the related skills at a 100% competency 70% of the time. For example – a candidate must demonstrate an ACA model of any given stroke seven out of ten times to be considered at a passing level. A solid instructor candidate should be able to perform all the skills at their level with unconscious competence.
