Let us answer your Frequently Asked Questions

Nope! You do not need to be registered with AusActive or ACE – you can accumulate CECs to add toward your AusActive or ACE memberships if you want to use it for that if you are registered with them – but you do not have to be a member to do the course, get insurance or to teach pole!

We recommend having about 6 months of pole training behind you to start on the Beginners instructor course.   

To join the Intermediate course you will need to have completed the EDP Beginner certification (or an equivalent recognised pole certification). For Advanced – you will need to have completed the EDP Intermediate certification (or an equivalent).

There are no pre-requisites to join the instructor training camp though as this camp covered all three levels right up to Advanced, we recommend you are of a High Intermediate/ Pre-Advanced level to get the most out of it. You don’t need to do all the tricks in the Advanced course as the focus is on learning to break them down and deliver the technique points using numerous teaching methods (not just demonstration). You will need to demo just two Advanced tricks during your practical teaching assessment, some of the choices include: Jade or Aysha/ Elbow Aysha or even Iguana (you don’t have to Fonji or Russian Split don’t worry!)
