There are 102 videos on this course. If you watched one video per day, it would take 102 days. It is really dependent upon individual instructors and the time they have available to devote to learning. All learning must be completed before the 120 days is up. There is no way to extend learning for a student as the software on the website has not been designed to offer any course extensions.
BarreFloor is classed as CPD - meaning that you already have to be a certified instructor in possession of an industry award (qualification) in order to take the course. You are therefore building on your skills that you have already acquired as a qualified instructor. Upon successful completion of the course, you would be certified to teach BarreConcept (but it is not a qualification in and of itself)
In order to achieve a pass in this course, a theory assessment must be successfully achieved -
Assessment One - BarreFloor Online Theory Quiz (80% pass). Ten Multiple Choice Questions
Upon successful completion of all assessments, you will receive the relevant CPD points, along with the Pilates Union certificate of competency to teach BarreFloor
