The theory paper has 70 marks. A minimum of 49 marks overall is required in order to pass.
As a Home Study course
To pass the practical assessment, you will be required to complete the Cheerobics Instructor Manual as an open book assessment, and to return it by post to the UK. A 95% pass mark is required to pass the theory portion of the course.You will be given a mock exam paper which you can complete with the help of your online tutor and via your skype tutorial session, to ensure that you fully understand the material before your submission.
When you successfully pass your theory examination you will be invited to send in your practical examination by video, where you will be required to submit a CONTINOUS and UNEDITED 60 minute video of you teaching a Cheerobics® class. Instructions, details and marking criteria will be sent to you via email. The practical exam has 70 marks and divided into two sections: 'Teaching' and 'Technical'. You must get 70% in each section individually in order to pass.
You will have 3 months from the date of your theory exam to submit your video
