Congratulations, you’ve made it right through the online Level 1 Instructor course! It’s a lot of information, but you’ll continue to have access to it all for the duration of your instructor qualification, and you’re welcome to return and review any of the lessons any time. If you would like to discuss or query any of the material covered in the course please contact us.
If you feel confident in the material, then please go ahead and complete the two online tests below. The first is multi-choice, and you can view the answers after you have completed it. This is to help you ensure that you have absorbed all the knowledge you need. The second is a written test, which we will grade after you have submitted it.
You MUST complete these two tests in order to finish your qualification process.
You must also ensure all your assignments are completed. Here is a quick recap of the tasks that you have been set during the various lessons.
