ICP Levels Defined

ICP Levels are defined according to the riding/training/competing and horse care knowledge and skills that a certified instructor must successfully impart to his/her students for them to safely and competently meet the challenges presented at USEA and FEI eventing competitions.  For identification of the required riding/training/competing, horse care, safety/medical, and teaching theory and practice content for each of ICP’s Levels, order the ICP Standards Booklet, 3rd Edition from the USEA office.  (The Standards Booklet is included when a candidate instructor registers with ICP.)

Definitions of ICP Instructor Levels (for both regular and provisional ICP certification):

Level I-Novice:  Instructors of riders through Novice level riding/training/competing and horse care

Level I-Training:  Instructors of riders through Training level riding/training/competing and horse care

Level II:  Instructors of riders through Preliminary, CIC*, Training Level Three-Day Event Test, CCI* riding/training/competing and horse care

Level III:  Instructors of riders through Intermediate, CIC**, CCI** riding/training/competing and horse care

Level IV:  Instructors of riders through Advanced, CIC***, CCI*** riding/training/competing and horse care

Level V:  Instructors of riders through CCI**** riding/training/competing and horse care
                               
(ICP does not educate or assess at Level V:  Level V remains an idealized state, the state of the “compleat” event instructor!)

 

The above definitions of ICP Levels are the same for both the regular ICP certificate and the provisional ICP certificate.
