While conducting a training flight on nov/fri/91 the nose gear of the aircraft I was flying collapsed on rollout. We had just completed an ILS to runway 14 ilg on the go from runway 1. I asked for the option for left closed traffic. The controller said runway 14 was available and gave the local winds (which were favoring 14) so we said we would land 14. On the base entry we ran the before landing checklist. Both my student and I verified we had the gear down and locked. Also on short final, we verified the gear down and locked. The landing was uneventful during the roundout and flare. After we touched down and crossed runway 14 and 27 the gear in transition light came on and the nose gear collapsed. We slid approximately 1000 ft down the runway to a stop. We landed and rolled on all 3 gear then the nose simply gave out. I do not see that there was anything I could have done to prevent this.

Title: GA SMA NOSE GEAR COLLAPSE AFTER LNDG AT ILG ON A TRAINING FLT.
Narrative: WHILE CONDUCTING A TRAINING FLT ON NOV/FRI/91 THE NOSE GEAR OF THE ACFT I WAS FLYING COLLAPSED ON ROLLOUT. WE HAD JUST COMPLETED AN ILS TO RWY 14 ILG ON THE GO FROM RWY 1. I ASKED FOR THE OPTION FOR L CLOSED TFC. THE CTLR SAID RWY 14 WAS AVAILABLE AND GAVE THE LCL WINDS (WHICH WERE FAVORING 14) SO WE SAID WE WOULD LAND 14. ON THE BASE ENTRY WE RAN THE BEFORE LNDG CHKLIST. BOTH MY STUDENT AND I VERIFIED WE HAD THE GEAR DOWN AND LOCKED. ALSO ON SHORT FINAL, WE VERIFIED THE GEAR DOWN AND LOCKED. THE LNDG WAS UNEVENTFUL DURING THE ROUNDOUT AND FLARE. AFTER WE TOUCHED DOWN AND CROSSED RWY 14 AND 27 THE GEAR IN TRANSITION LIGHT CAME ON AND THE NOSE GEAR COLLAPSED. WE SLID APPROX 1000 FT DOWN THE RWY TO A STOP. WE LANDED AND ROLLED ON ALL 3 GEAR THEN THE NOSE SIMPLY GAVE OUT. I DO NOT SEE THAT THERE WAS ANYTHING I COULD HAVE DONE TO PREVENT THIS.
