Local Practicum Mentor Information
Please Note:
Group Fitness Instructor course students must find a leadership mentor in their community to take them through the practicum components of the CFES Group Fitness Instructor Course, proctor their certification exam and assist in the student’s video skills assessment to be submitted to their CFES Educator or Skills Assessment Evaluator (SAE).

The leadership mentor should be an approved certified Group Fitness Instructor with on-the-floor and supervisory experience themselves to guide the student through the practicum.

The practicum program a series of group fitness class labs and assignments the student does under mentor supervision during and after their instructor course. Completion procedures and documentation are in the CFES Group Fitness Instructor Course program work booklet/study guide and in the online courseware.

Once the student’s leadership mentor is confirmed the student would bring the mentor the course manual and program work booklet for both to review and complete together as the course conductor assigns various assignments. The leadership mentor and the student would work through the practicum labs and complete the documentation. The practicum documents are submitted to the course conductor on the courses’ scheduled submission dates.
