How long does the course take?
It will take 40-60 hours depending on your previous experience with aerial or as a teacher of something else. One benefit of online learning is that you can complete the course in your own time. This course is perfectly designed to suit busy students with full time work or family commitments as you will have completely flexible study hours.
There is no need to forgo your regular work while you study with us, and you don’t need to spend on travel or hotels either. You will be able to repeat and review any material as much as you feel you need to.
When you purchase any AFI course you receive lifetime access to it. (Not that we expect you will take that long! It’s just nice to know you can review and refresh from time to time)
I am a little out of shape and I am not sure I am good enough to actually teach.
It is not necessary to be at a particular level in your own fitness or practice. You’ll find that over the training period your personal skills will develop magnificently as you work through the course and practice the modules.
Do I need prior teaching experience?
This course is a comprehensive and stand-alone instructor training. In other words, you don’t need to already be teaching some sort of physical class and you will be able to become a successful aerial teacher on completion.
This course will give you:
- A clear understanding of how to best structure your classes. You will have the step by step instructions such as where your students need to be to begin, perform and complete each move.
- Precise knowledge of exactly what you need to help your students. For example, how each hand grip needs to be, how high up, how many gathers to take, and you will know all the key cueing points.
- You will be able to give clear instructions to keep everyone in the room safe. You will be able to offer both hands on and hands off assistance as required.
- You will learn how and when you need to move around the room and exactly where to best position yourself in each part of the class.
- You will discover the best ways to transition from one more to the next so your classes will flow beautifully.
And much much more. (see the above curriculum for exactly what’s included in your course)
With all this knowledge you will be able to instruct with confidence and flair, even if you are brand new to teaching.
