Frequently asked questions:

1) What does the cost include?

Our rates include BarreAmped teacher training, manual and certification, complimentary access to teaching videos for a limited time post-training.

2) What are the different certifications that you offer?

BarreAmped Level 1 Certification is the pre-requisite for further levels of certification. It’s an intensive training to prepare you to not only understand and perform each foundational exercise well, but to also gain skills in teaching the method while inspiring and correcting clients.

BarreAmped Level 2 Certification effectively doubles your repertoire of BarreAmped exercises for mixed- and advanced-level classes and provides additional training to hone teaching and correcting skills. Level 2 also includes training in the Boot Camp & Fire formats. 

3) Will there be an exam?

Yes, there will be a written (theory & anatomy) and practical teaching test at the end of each training. Upon successful completion of the course, you receive access to the teacher's website with videos and sample classes. Access to our facebook group where you can interact with teachers from all over the world, a BarreAmped Teacher's Conference and retreats.

Yearly recertification is not necessary and only required in order to maintain your access to the teacher's website. You can recertify by attending Level 2 or any of our other trainings (Power Stretch, Bounce, Pre and Post Natal, etc.). 

4) At the end of the training, do we receive a certificate? 

Yes, you will receive a certificate issued by BarreAmped. It will confirm that you have completed training and are a "Certified Barre Teacher" with BarreAmped.

Since BarreAmped is a licensed method, you are only allowed to call yourself a "BarreAmped Teacher" if you are teaching at a licensed studio such as Barre 2 Barre. 

You can call yourself a Certified Barre Teacher with BarreAmped, but not a Certified BarreAmped Teacher. 

In the same way someone might take a Yoga Teacher Training at Pure Yoga or similar, after successfully completing training they can call themselves a "Certified Yoga Teacher" but not a "Certified Pure Yoga Teacher".
