Frequently Asked Questions
Can I teach barre with a Level 1 certification only?
In most cases, yes! Ultimately, this will depend on the hiring studio or gym. Some will prefer a comprehensive certification, but most will acknowledge the intensive training undertaken by those who are “Level 1 Barre Certified by BarreAmped®.”
How do I maintain an active certification status?
Maintain your active certification status with BarreAmped® by 1) remaining a member in good standing of the BarreAmped® Network (i.e. submit monthly payments without interruption), and 2) participate in at least one continued education course in the time prior to your renewal date.
What is my Renewal Date?
The date of your Level 1 Training becomes the one and only date you’ll need to remember from here on out. That is your Renewal Date and completion of a continued education course prior to that date one year in the future will be required in order to maintain an active certification status.
Can I choose to renew by taking an online test and paying a flat fee?
Effective November 1, 2018, this option is no longer available. We want the best for you — your barre training is a worthy investment in yourself, and you’ll benefit most from continued learning and remaining current with your BarreAmped® Network membership.
I’m currently Barre Certified by BarreAmped®. How do I upgrade from the old version of the Instructor Portal to the BarreAmped® Network?
Check your email for instructions. You can register for access to the BarreAmped® Network at any time using the unique link included in your email. The date you register becomes your new Renewal Date (the one and only date you’ll need to remember). Your annual renewal is now broken into monthly payments and your first six months are on the house.
If the training I want to attend occurs after my Renewal Date, can I still get credit for continuing education?
As long as the training is scheduled within 60 days after your Renewal Date (and you’ve registered prior to your Renewal Date), you’re good to go!!
I’ve already completed my continuing education for this year, but there’s another training I’d like to attend. Can I get credit for next year’s continuing education?
If the second training in question is within 60 days prior to this year’s Renewal Date, it can apply toward next year’s continuing education.
