STEP 3: Getting you Endorsement
As an aspiring Trainee Instructor, in order to register for an Initial Training Module in any Les Mills program, you must first gain 'Endorsement' from a gym or fitness facility that is licensed in the program you wish to teach. Endorsement ensures you have the opportunity to practise and refine your skills. All Instructors must secure Endorsement before booking into an Initial Module Training.
