ISI Open Freestyle tests and competitions were implemented in 2009. In the past, ISI's freestyle skaters competed and and tested at the ISI Freestyle 1 through 10 levels. The organization's skaters now have an option of also competing and testing in Open Freestyle in addition to Freestyle 1 through 10. The Open Freestyle levels may be somewhat similar to US Figure Skating's Test Track program in some ways, but skaters can put anything they want in their programs as long as elements are not from higher test levels.
The ISI Open tests and levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Figure skaters are not required to first pass the ISI Alpha through Delta tests before taking the Open tests, so US Figure Skating's skaters who wish to take part in ISI can now do so with ease. Also, skaters only need to pass the ISI Open test that corresponds to their US Figure Skating freestyle test level. For example, a US Figure Skating skater who has passed the Preliminary or Pre-Juvenile free skating test would take the ISI Open Silver Freestyle test.
The tests have two parts. First, skaters must pass compulsory moves and then perform a freestyle program to music. When a skater competes, he or she can choose to include his or her strongest skating elements in a competition program.
