1. How Do I Register?
Congratulations on taking the exciting leap to join our tribe! To register, you'll need to hit "LOGIN" in the top right hand corner of our homepage. Select "New Instructor" to create a Customer Profile with us if you don't already have one. Click "Training Store" then click on the logo of your preferred program and follow the prompts to lock in your spot.
2. What happens during Days 1 & 2?
8 days prior to your training module start date, you'll be sent a music download link and allocated 1-2 tracks to learn from your training release. Learn these as best you can and come to Days 1 & 2 with a digital music player, your choreography notes from the allocated release, pens, paper, a towel and several changes of clothes. Over the two days, your Trainer will teach you how to be an instructor! You'll learn about technique, choreography and how to master the 5 Key Elements that Les Mills Instructors use to deliver amazing workouts to members, all around the world.
3. What happens during the 8 Week Pathway?
At your first two days of training, you'll be given a white booklet. This is your "roadmap" to guide you (and your mentor) through your 8 week pathway. You'll head back to your endorsing club to participate in a mixture of shadowing and team teaching to practice instructing your entire training release. This is all in preparation for your third day of training!
4. What happens on Day 3?
You've spent the last 8 weeks working super hard on your choreography, technique and coaching - now it's time for it all to come together! You'll be allocated up to three tracks at random (on the day) from your training release to present. Upon meeting the criteria to achieve certification and receiving a "PASS" - you will be an internationally certified Les Mills Instructor!
5. What are the outcomes?
There are two outcome options for each portion of your training. Days 1 & 2 - At the completion of your second day you will be marked as "Attended" or "At Risk". An "Attended" outcome means you are on the right track to begin your 8 week pathway and your journey towards certification. An "At Risk" outcome simply means there are some areas we've identified where you need a bit of extra help - and that's ok! Our amazing Instructor Specialist team will be here to support you throughout your pathway and ensure you are on track to certify. Day 3 - At the completion of your third day of training you will recieve a "PASS" or a "RESIT". A "PASS" outcome means you have met the minimum criteria and are now an internationally certified Les Mills instructor - Congratulations! A "RESIT" outcome means there's still a little more work to do, so we'll pop you in to another Day 3 of your choosing to give you a bit more time*

6. What else do I need?
In Australia, it is advised that once you are Certified, have completed an Industry qualification such as Group Exercise Leader Certificate or Certificate III in Fitness and hold a current Provide First Aid + CPR Certificate, that you register with an industry body (e.g Fitness Australia, FITREC etc). This is to ensure that you can obtain the appropriate insurances before teaching Group Fitness classes. If you choose to register with Fitness Australia, you are required to adhere to the Scope of Practice outlined by Fitness Australia. You must be a registered Group Exercise Instructor in order to attain Fitness Australia CEC’s.
7. What if I have not completed my certification prior to 2018?
If you have only completed two days of training, you are most likely teaching uncertified. This poses both you and your employers at risk of voiding insurance and potential legal action should anything go wrong. Luckily, this is an easy fix and all you'll need to do is attend a Day 3 near you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and your Instructor Specialist Team will endeavor to get back to you as soon as they can*
