Instructor Training

There are many self defence instructor programs out there that offer you an instructor qualification after however long amount of training. But few have any personal requirements besides the fee. Primal Survival™ takes pride in its teachings and as such we go through a detailed process to make sure you are the right type of person we want teaching our system. The steps below outline how we develop and prepare instructors to teach our curriculum.

[toggle_framed title="Step 1 Attending Regular Classes or Intensive 6-Day Course" variation="red"]The first step is to obviously show an interest and start training with one of our qualified instructors in the Primal Survival™ System or conduct a 6 Day Intensive Course with the Head Coach Karma Senge. This enables the student to examine and learn the system inside out. At any time during your lessons you may make a request to become an instructor , your instructor will then keep an eye on you to see if you are ready to progress onto the instructors interview stage.[/toggle_framed]
[toggle_framed title="Step 2 Attending the Interview" variation="red"]The interview stage is very important as you will be asked a series of questions on Personal Defence and about your reasons in becoming a self defence instructor. We will inform you by email if you have been accepted and if not what criteria you failed to meet. During the interview you will also be informed on the Primal Survival™ company structure and the way in which we do business as you will potentially become an ambassador and licensee of our brand.[/toggle_framed]
[toggle_framed title="Step 3 Attend the 10 day intensive instructors course" variation="red"]The next stage if successful on the interview will be to join our 10 day instructors program which is progressive. You will learn the in-depth mythology into the system and also work towards your professional teaching qualification whilst preparing and delivering criticised lessons. By the end of the course you will be able to not only teach the Primal Survival™ system but also run your own business. Your qualifications when you leave are unparallel within self defence.[/toggle_framed]
[toggle_framed title="Step 4 Sign the Licensee Agreement" variation="red"]Once your certification has been approved and you are successful you will need to sign the licensee agreement and then you will be provided with your insurance certification, web access and promotional start up material including your first 10 student packs ready to go. From then on you will be backed by Primal Survival™ and all of your continual professional development will start from there.[/toggle_framed]
