QUESTIONS, ANYONE?

Important FAQs About Becoming An Instructor!

Q: Are there any prerequisites to taking a B1 training?

A: No, however it helps if you've already taken a Zumba® class before, or if you have previous experience in teaching group exercise classes.

Q: What happens after the training?

A: After completing the Instructor Training, you can begin teaching whenever you feel comfortable and ready. Instructors act as independent contractors, giving you the freedom to set your own schedule, rates, terms, agreements, etc.

Q: Do I need any other certifications before I can teach?

A: The Zumba® program is considered a specialty certificate, so depending on your country or facility center, you may need a general group exercise certificate. Be sure to check with your government or local guidelines to see what the requirements are in order for you to teach.
