How do I know if I'm ready to join an ADAPT Tutor Certification?
If you have completed the Level 3 Coach Certification and feel passionate about helping develop new generations of coaches, then the Tutor pathway may well be for you. The best way to know whether it is or not is to attend a Tutor Certification and then begin the observation/assisting process, as you will soon discover whether you are truly cut out for the responsibility or not. And it is a significant responsibility, as Tutors shape entire generations of coaches, who then go on to impact thousands of lives worldwide!
What do I need to do to pass the Tutor Certification?There is no strict pass/fail aspect to this Certification. Once the 2-day course is complete it is a process of assisting on live courses and learning from active Tutors until both you and ADAPT feel you are ready to deliver courses by yourself.
How does the post-course course assisting happen?
Following the course you will remain in close contact with the ADAPT logistics team who will be able to offer you places to observe and/or assist on live Level 1 Parkour Coach Certification courses. Travel, accommodation and any expenses you may incur while assisting at these events are your own responsibility. The Delivery Centre running the course will provide access to the course and the Tutor will be aware of your assisting on the course, and will provide feedback and answers to any questions as the course progresses. You may be asked to assist at various points if the Tutor deems you to be ready to do so.
The assisting process is entirely your own responsibility. Pro-active Tutor candidates will always be prioritised and rewarded for their efforts to complete their Tutor certification process.
