General Questions.

1: How soon will I get access to the course/program I have purchased?

A: Usually within a few hours (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays). Please bear with us during busy times.

2: Q: Payment Methods?

Payment can be taken by Paypal (secure on-line payment system).

3: Q: Can You Provide Insurance?

A: We no longer offer insurance because 99% of the time the instructor sources and obtains their own. Usually they can get this from their existing provider or go elsewhere if not and send a copy of their certificate once passed the Fox Fitness course. Please note the program licence and insurance are not the same and both are required to teach.

3a: Q: Can you provide Insurance in non-UK countries?

A: NO! The insurance policies and cover that we can provide extend to the UK only. This is due to strict guidelines and regulations from the Financial Services Authority (FSA) that we have to adhere to. Please check your country’s insurance policies and conform to their guidelines. Find a reputable Insurance Broker and check all their policies particularly relating to program before registering and paying.

4: Q: What is the qualification process for home study courses?

A: Assessment Process. We access you through our Remote Assessment System and consists of 2 components:

1) Practical (Video):
You are required to teach one other person or a small group the assessment routine that is provided with the course. We assess you based on a certain criteria (you’ll receive a copy of the assessment form with your program so you know what we’re looking for), such as safety, good execution and overall ability to demonstrate your understanding and knowledge of the program. The benefits to you mean you don’t have to spend time or money away from your schedule to attend any assessment day, etc. We want to make it as easy and straightforward for you to become certificated.

2) Written:
Write out a session plan, specific to the course you are doing (this will fully explained). This must be in your own words of how you would personally plan, including coaching and safety points based on teaching a 1 hour class once a week covering such things as your teaching notes, adaptations and anything else to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the program.

Everything is covered in the program including filming guidelines and what we’re looking for. You can submit your filmed assessment on DVD disc, load it up to Filemail.com or on YouTube (private). Your written assessment can be emailed in a word.doc.

A: Many of our programmes are multi level (we also provide updated conent (where applicable) on the awesome registered instructor support area after you have been granted certification and licence to teach our programs) . We do not pressure or make it compulsory that you purchase additional levels its entirely up to you and your needs.
