The only requirement to attending an IERC is that you must already hold an Instructional rating. You can attend this ground course at any time in your pursuit of your examiner rating. In fact, the methods and techniques in this course are best done early, so you can apply them and incorporate them in your regular instruction.
Before the course, please do the following:
1. Make sure you have a SIM and IRM. Please familiarize yourself with these two important references.
2. Complete the Examiner Test from the IRM.
3. You will be evaluated on your teaching skills. The first evaluation is more informal, just to get your feet wet. Each candidate will give a 10 to 15 minute classroom presentation on a non-skydiving topic, i.e. fly fishing, juggling,
shooting a gun, hitting a baseball, changing oil in an airplane, taking
photographs, loading and organizing files on a computer, playing
a basic drumset pattern. You can assume your audience knows NOTHING about this
topic. Let Jen know what topic you decide on; plus secure any necessary physical materials and prepare a written lesson plan
