What does the assessment involve?
Once you have completed all the modules, as well as 10 practice teaching hours, 20 class participation and 20 class observation hours, you must submit a video of you teaching a full 50-60 minute barre class. This will be assessed by our team of teacher trainers. The course is designed to prepare you to pass with flying colours and you can't fail, though we may ask you to resubmit your assessment if it doesn’t meet the criteria.
Are there any prerequisites?
Our courses are open to everyone! Our course materials cater to everyone from absolute beginners to those with existing fitness qualifications. If you are doing the full barre teaching program, we suggest you do 10 barre classes prior to commencing the course.
How long will this course take me?
The Barre Body Online Teacher Training course is completely self-paced, so you can take it at whatever speed works best for you. If you sped through the content, you could watch it all in about a week. Then you would need to complete your observation hours and practice teaching hours as well as review the content to learn the repertoire. You would then have to film and submit your assessment. Most people take 3-6 months to complete the course, but you can do it in a month or so if you are super keen.
How long is my access?
You have 6 months access to the course online. You will also be sent a hard copy manual which you will have forever.
I don’t have a clue about anatomy, help!
Firstly, don’t panic! One of the very best things about Barre Body’s training programs is that we make learning anatomy accessible and even fun.
Can I teach after I get my qualification?Yes, most of our graduates go on to teach at various barre studios. You may teach barre classes in a gym, or you could start your own business or studio.
What happens after the course?
You’ll have plenty of ongoing support and mentoring from our team, in the form of our Facebook community. Taking the leap from training to teaching can be a little daunting, so we’re right there with you even after your training has wrapped up. We will be adding new courses very soon so you’ll always have more to learn.
Will I be supported along the way?
Yes, of course. You have access to our facebook community as well as an expert trainer on hand to answer any question you may have. You can email us or you can simply comment at the bottom of a lecture and a master trainer will reply to your question or comment within a day or two (and often sooner).
