The PSA Official Rating System is for coaches who want to validate their skating skill and teaching experience.
Ratings are an assurance to clubs, rinks, skaters, parents and the general public that the coach they hire is technically
qualified to instruct at the level in which they are rated regardless of background and skating achievement. Ratings consist of both written and oral examinations.
Once a rating has been earned, a coach must maintain at least 28 educational credits over a three-year period through attendance at educational events.
