BASIC 1 (B1) INSTRUCTOR TRAINING
After The Training
Once you have taken the one-day ZUMBA® Basic Instructor Training you are licensed to teach ZUMBA® Fitness classes, use the "ZUMBA®" name in your class title, and call yourself a ZUMBA® Instructor. Any other use of the ZUMBA® name or logo must be approved by the ZUMBA® Corporate office. ZUMBA® Fitness is a registered trademark of ZUMBA® Fitness, LLC, which holds copyright ownership on all ZUMBA® related material and use of name and logo. Anyone who teaches ZUMBA® without having a current Certificate of Completion would be in violation of trademark and copyright laws.
After the ZUMBA® Instructor Training day, you can start teaching whenever you feel ready. We would always advise every instructor no matter how experienced to give themselves at least a few weeks following the training. Every ZUMBA® Instructor is an independent contractor, so you will set up your own schedule, rates, terms, agreements, etc. with whichever facilities you choose. The ZUMBA® Instructor Training will teach you about Zumba and how to teach and create Zumba routines for a Zumba Class. The movement section and the included DVDs and music CD provide plenty of ideas to get you started.
ZUMBA Instructors Network (ZIN™)
During the Training day it is possible to join ZUMBA® Fitness' continuing education program ZIN™ (Zumba Instructor Network). ZIN™ gives ZUMBA® Instructors full licensed used of the logo for marketing and publicity materials, choreography DVDs, PPL free music CDs and downloads, further on-line training resources and a network of instructors which will also provide an enormous amount of help to get started. Joining this program is optional but costs $34.95 (around £20) a month. Other ZUMBA® Instructor Trainings, including our speciality trainings are planed across the UK in the coming months. These include ZUMBA KIDZ & KIDZ JR® (children's programme), ZUMBA GOLD® (designed for older active adults or de-conditioned beginners), ZUMBA TONING® (weighted programme), AQUA ZUMBA® (shallow water pool party) ZUMBA SENTAO (toning based chair workout) and ZUMBA STEP (adding ZUMBA fun into a step based workout). ZUMBA® Basics One is a pre-requisite for all other ZUMBA® Instructor Trainings. These trainings can only be booked by currently licensed instructors.
A ZUMBA® Instructor licence is valid for one year. As with any reputable occupation, a professional in any industry is expected to keep up-to-date on industry knowledge and stay fresh with their industry skills. ZUMBA® Fitness wants its instructors to be the best in the industry and maintain a high level of expertise and proficiency. To help instructors sustain this status, Zumba Fitness provides numerous opportunities for continuing education and requires all ZUMBA® Instructors to update their skills annually in order to renew their instructor certificate. One such option is to join ZIN, The ZUMBA® Instructor Network. ZUMBA® Fitness is now affiliated with REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) so if you are an existing member you can gain 4 CPD Points through attending a ZUMBA® Instructor Training day.
