Barre Intensity certified status is provided to those who have completed an instructor training and received a passing score on their video test out. Following an instructor training an average of 30 practice hours are recommended. This number is just an average and while some require less hours, some require more. It is suggested the 30 hours be broken down in to 10 hours of participation (taking Barre Intensity or similar style classes), 10 hours of observation (watching a class in action and actively taking notes) and 10 hours or practice teaching. Once ready, record yourself teaching a 50-60 minute Barre Intensity class to at least one person and submit the video link along with the associated $45 fee. Those that receive a passing score will be certified in Barre Intensity.
This includes manual, training, online and onsite hours.
