Who is this training for?

Our PTT Beginner Certification is designed for anyone who is already a Pole Teacher or an aspiring Pole Teacher.

This course can also be taken for self-growth and personal development without having to complete the written and practical exams.


We will be breaking down the movements in the course, however, we ask that you already have knowledge on the introductory moves like basic spins, transitions, climbs and sits.



Written Exam

Each section of the course contains a multiple choice quiz which must be completed at the end of that section. There is a final exam, also multiple choice, at the end of the course which covers the entire course material. The student must acquire a 100% grade to pass and become certified.

Each quiz and the final exam may be repeated as many times as needed to receive the passing grade of 100%. The exams are open book, however, the Pole Teacher must still know the material and study for the exam.

Practical Exam

To become certified, the Pole Teacher is required to teach a 30 minute mock class. The mock class must be submitted by video or be scheduled in-person/virtual with one of the trainers and submitted within 30 days of course completion.

*The video may not be edited with multiple takes.

*If the Pole Teacher does not have a mock student to teach, play-acting is acceptable.


To pass the certification, we require a minimum of 80% passing grade on the practical. After submitting your practical exam, you will receive your results and certificate within 60 days. The practical exam fee is included in the course fee. If you do not pass, you may redo your written exam as many times as you need and resubmit your practical exam within 30 days. There is a practical exam resubmission fee of $97 CAD + tax. A 30 day extension can be given for an additional fee of $25 CAD + tax.

Graduate of Pole Beginner Certification

“I found the Pole Beginner Certification a slick, interesting, fun and informative learning experience.
Even though I’ve been a certified pole teacher since 2019, having gained various certifications, I felt like I learnt something new. Their thoughtful approach to teaching pole, their teaching techniques and their advice. My favourite thing about the training was its focus on inclusivity - this is the first time I’ve seen such a thorough inclusivity section in a teacher training, and I really liked their aim of educating its certified teachers to resist oppression and make sure everyone feels welcome in class.
Would recommend this training to polers looking to teach in a heartbeat!”
