Getting certified to become a kickboxing instructor can seem daunting without guidance. The good news is, whether you are a fitness enthusiast, martial arts guru or a participant in a kickboxing class that fell in love with the format, getting certified is not difficult. Once you have researched and developed a plan, it is a simple process.
Determine what you want to do with the certification -- work for a fitness center or use for recreational use. Contact the gym that you are interested in teaching if this is the direction you have chosen and speak with the group fitness or training manager. Ask the manager which certification -- national, regional, online, for example -- would be required to instruct at his facility.
Research the certifying organizations to determine which one is best for you. Contact the certification organization to book your training and purchase any necessary materials, including workbook, text book, boxing wraps.
Prepare by studying your material, if applicable. Increase endurance to prepare to be able to physically present the material. Find a kickboxing instructor who has used the organization you are certifying through and ask questions about the process.
Get certified. Simply follow the directions of the certifying organization to finish the process. Once you have completed the process it may take six weeks to four months to receive your proof of certification.
