IIFSA also has a graduated structure for learning inline figure skating that is not as comprehensive as RSA but is useful. They also have a certification program for inline figure skating coaches.

USFIFS is developing a program based on the U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills program but is being modified to inlines. This is not ready yet.

But a good guide to start with is "How to Jump and Spin on In-Line Skates" by JoAnn Schneider Farris. A link to her book at Amazon is:

JoAnn is also one of the USFIFS Board members.
