The program is completely online and available to anyone around the world. All you have to do is enroll and activate your account via email, and you’re ready to begin. Unlike other online programs, you will have access to the instructional materials immediately. As you complete each module, the next module’s materials will become available to you. The course work review at the end of each module are not graded—they are a way to review the material you just learned to make sure you understand the concepts covered, and help you prepare for the final exam. Additionally, you will get access to live webinars with a Master Instructor as they go through the program and chapters step-by-step with you in real time! We host webinars, exam study sessions, bonus webinars and questions and answer sessions monthly, and we also try to accommodate for International Timezone!
The Final Written Exam is located in the last module. Once you have received a passing grade of 80% or better on the Final Written Exam, you are free to work on the Practical Exam. For the Practical Exam, you will submit a video showcasing the skills you have learned throughout your training for evaluation by our Master Instructors. You also have the option to do an In-Person Video Conference via Zoom with one of the IBBFA Master Instructors. The video conference test-out will also expedite your processing and you will know immediately if you have passed the exam.
Once you have successfully completed the Practical Exam and received a passing evaluation, you will receive your Certificate and IBBFA ID Card, and are now able to teach Barre to your community.
