SFB BODYWEIGHT INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
(SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
The instructor candidates must pass two tests:
- Teaching safely and effectively.
- Strength test.
The teaching test is administered at the end of the course.
Candidates have a choice of taking the strength test during the course or submitting a video up to 6 months after the end of the certification.
The strength test for men is the one-arm/one leg pushup. One side is tested.
The strength test for women is a one-arm pushup with feet at shoulder width.
In rare cases a highly accomplished, national or international-level coach or athlete may be exempt from the strength or technique tests due to chronic injury. The same exemption is available for veteran military, law enforcement and first responders. These exemptions will be applied for on a case-by-case basis and be presented to the Chief of that discipline (SFG, SFL or SFB) for approval. All requests for exemption can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org for vetting. We will then forward to the respective chiefs.
