This course only offers 1/3 of the required material of the official teacher training curriculum, hence the certification title is different (FeetUp Inversion Safety Specialist). There is no substitute for the experience of in-person learning, especially when it comes to maintaining the integrity of the official FeetUp Teacher Training program and curriculum. We honor the efforts of those who have already invested the time and effort into their studies while encouraging others who wish pursue the same path. As such, students who take this online course will receive a discount to enroll in a live training of their choice so they can enjoy the full experience and eventually become a certified FeetUp Instructor!
