Are you passionate about POLE and want to make it your career? Then the Ecole de Pole MASTER Training series is for you!

Online and Face to Face accredited instructor Training Courses, internationally recognised and available across the globe through our web based distance Learning Management portal, or in person at studio.    

Based on functional teaching methodology written by Justine McLucas, each course builds on the knowledge of the previous from beginner foundation skills, right up to Advanced spotting for flips and drops, with a focus on ways to see real results and technical growth in your students.

Participants will develop a high skill level in technical instruction, by identifying muscles and joints used in pole grips and tricks, ways to correct technique, build strength and flexibility, with an emphasis on safety and injury prevention to support students throughout their pole journey.

Suitable as an instructor training tool, for new or experienced teachers, the courses provide insight and skills for the pole dancer wishing to further their own personal understanding of the mechanics of pole movement even if not to teach, but to apply improved techniques to their pole training.

EDP MASTER Training Courses are approved by AUSactive (formerly called Fitness Australia), the ACE (American Council on Exercise) and PDC (Pole Dance Community UK, Europe, USA) .
