We took over the NSCP (National Skateboard Certification Program) approximately 11 years ago which was originally developed & researched with government grants by the town of Newmarket Sports & Recreation Department in Canada who did an amazing job.
Our team continues to evolve and add to the existing program using new materials and research and have expanded it into the ISCP (International Skateboard Certification Program) & SKATZ (Stance, Kicks, Axels, Transfers & Zen).
Here are 2 small video clips from a certification program I ran in the fall of 2019 for Skateistan in Johannesburg South Africa. I had the honour of training & certified 12 Instructors and 6 of those became Facilitators to teach/certify others in the program in their geographic regions of the world.
We were all thrilled and pleased with the course and hoping these short video clips gives you a little more insight about the Program.
We also last month launched our 1st virtual course with 5 countries and 16 people attending and it went great.
For us it’s all about having a standardization that everybody can follow so that we can develop and make skateboarding one of the best action sports out there!
With the Olympics we are getting daily requests from around the globe to train and certify instructors. We are now in 30 countries, 375 cities and growing.
Countries, Municipalities, Parks & Recreation Departments, Sports organizations are reaching out to us to both certify Instructors and train Facilitators so that they can offer the courses to others in their geographic regions.

Good morning, Jay .. Thanks again for sharing your program with us yesterday, .. I’d love to have you as a guest on SkateboardCanada, I do a show, you can see previous episodes on our YouTube channel under SkateboardCanada .. would help expose more folks to what you do. Let me know if you’re interested and when you’d be available .. take care! – Roger Bruinsma ⭐️🌞 (Alberta Canada)
Thanks again Jay for emailing and getting me involved in this opportunity. You’re an inspiration to the community in the GTA, around the world, and the skateboarding community everywhere will continue to grow thanks to your initiatives. With everything moving online, and being what it is, I thought the course was well done, and the discussions were meaningful and insightful. The content was very informative and organized in a logical way that made sense for those who may not understand children in relation to developmental learning skills and understanding their world view. I don’t doubt everyone learned not only from the course but gained some different perspectives of how people everywhere connect with skateboarding.
Take care, and I’m sure we’ll communicate soon. – Mike (Burlington, Ontario Canada)
