ICO Development Framework
The AKR has released a new framework separate from the IAS (Instructor Accreditation System) to bring it up to date with more modern sports governance.
The ICO Development framework outlines requirements for different levels of accreditation needed for different levels of instructor.
A PDF of the framework can be found attached [Mony – Please check your emails for this attachment]. It can also be viewed online via:
