About ElitePole’s instructor course

We have been educating pole fitness instructors since 2012, and during the years we have developed this instructor’s course which includes everything a competent pole instructor needs to learn. ElitePole’s instructor course consists of 3 intense weekends, homework and a time with practical practice. The 3 teaching weekends are a mix of theory, practice in teaching and a written and a practical exam. This is a basic instructor course, where you will acquire all the necessary teaching techniques – and the knowledge it takes to give competent teaching and become a class instructor in general. You will learn to teach beginner classes, and we will create the foundation you need as an instructor, and you will learn the tools it takes to teach in pole fitness. Please note that the course is not about your own training, but about learning how to teach others. Everyone who is strong in beginner moves and techniques can attend the course. No former teaching experience is necessary to attend.
