Certification FAQ's

Does completing the certification guarantee me a teaching position at Studio Chic?
- While we do require all of our pole dancing instructors to have completed the Studio Chic Level One Certification Course and receive a minimum of 75% on their written and practical examinations, there is more involved in becoming an instructor within the studio.  A full application and interview process is required.  Participants interested in teaching at the studio can submit an application/resume at any time, when the studio is hiring they will be contacted. 

Why are there Pre-Requisites for the certification course?
- It is our job to set you up for success!  We want you to be the best pole dancing instructor you can be.  We believe that by watching live classes, and observing from an instructors perspective you will learn a lot more than when you were a student in the class.  Watching different instructors teach, and how they structure their classes is very important.  The apprentice hours should be completed after the training course and before your exam.  The reason for these hours is to make sure you've had sufficient time to practice and get familiar with the material.  Your practical exam is worth 75% of your total mark.  We believe that a minimum of 10 hours of practice teaching should prepare you enough for the exam.

Can I take my own photos or videos during the training?
We encourage you to take photos of videos during the training!  The photos and videos are for your own personal learning purposes only, and cannot be posted or shared on social media.  There will be time during the course for you to do this.  Your teacher trainer will let you know when it's appropriate.
