We were contacted with some questions regarding the online assessment process
If you would like a FaceTime session with a member of the team at any time, with your home pole for an hour , we'll be happy to get one of our experienced training assessors to do this with you at a time to suit you whereby we can go through a face to face session working on your own personal style of teaching
Email us on - email@example.com where we will be more than happy to support your further
QUESTION - How best do you recommend learning the transitions/poses/core moves? I've been physically practicing moves but I'm having trouble practicing with the words together.
- this come with practice but until it comes second nature this process works well for many new instructors
show the move
describe the move in words including technical points
show the move again
get the student to do the move and make any corrections
show the move again should the student need to visually see the move again (more for kinaesthetic learners)
QUESTION - Am I required to say the exact words given in the online course earning material to successfully pass the exam? Or can the same instruction be given in my own words?
- you may use your own words
QUESTION - Is there any training information on how I should help and give corrections to a student if they are struggling with getting a move?
- more instructor support can be done on a 121 FaceTime session with us, whereby we can work with your individual strengths and weaknesses
- always bare in mind you can regress and break down a move or even go back to a previous move which will help build up your participants strength and confidence if they are struggling with one move in particular - remember every move is not going to suit ever participant every time, so have the confidence to adapt your lesson plan at a moments notice :)
QUESTION - At what point in my training do you suggest I press start to find out the information for my practical exam? Will I still be able to see the video and words in order to practice after this point?
- you may click to view all the videos at any time after you have completed the theory test - you can go back and see the videos at any time in the course
- there is a time limit of 4 months to view all the videos, but if you need an extension then let us know - we do this so you keep the momentum going with your learning and not leave it for months on end
QUESTION - When I film my practical exam is 1 student enough and will I be marked down for filming on a home pole? Must it be carried out in a professional studio?
- as long as you adhere to all the requirements, a home pole is fine - Naturally when you have paying customers you must be mindful that your insurance is adequate in any venue or location

The theory test consists of 20 questions in the form of multiple choice, fill in the blanks, answering true / false questions.
There is a time limit of 1 hour for the theory exam. You can start and stop as much as you need to within that hour
Many of the students have said it takes them shorter time than one hour
You will only have one attempt at the exam.
Once you have completed the exam you will find out your score. The pass mark required is 75%. If you pass you can then move on to the practical component of the course. If you do not meet the required score you will be offered the opportunity to review the course content further and to re-sit.
The practical assessment consists of you delivering a mock lesson to include three elements
1. A warm up component
2. Verbally and visually teaching 5 of the moves covered in the course that will be generated at random and cannot be changed.
