SFG I Kettlebell Recertification

How to keep your SFG certification current

You put in the time and effort to earn your SFG Instructor status; don’t let it slip away!

You have five options for recertification:

1. Attend the 3-day Level I SFG

Cost

$500

Eligibility

You need only register for the SFG prior to your cert’s current expiration date, to qualify for the recertification price of $500. This means that if an event is listed for December, for example, but your Cert expires in October, you’re okay to attend for $500 as long as you are registered before October. There is no maximum length for this carryover.

Procedure

Email the Certification organizer from the event’s registration page to request your recertification code for that particular event. Remember: You must be registered prior to your cert’s expiration date to receive the recert rate of $500.

Details

You will attend all three days, just as if you were going through for the first time.

2. Attend the Level II SFG

Cost

Cost as shown on the SFG II schedule page and registration form.

Eligibility

You need only register for the SFG Level II prior to your cert’s current expiration date, to qualify for attendance. This means that if an event is listed for December, for example, but your Cert expires in October, you’re okay to attend the Level II as long as you are registered before October. There is no maximum length for this eligibility carryover.

Procedure

You will be asked to upload a photo of your current Level I SFG Certification during registration, so that your eligibility can be confirmed. Please make sure this is legible.

Details

Retesting of your Level I skills are a required portion of the Level II. Upon successful completion of all requirements, you will earn a new Level I Certificate in addition to the Level II Certificate. Please see the Level II SFG Requirements for more information.

3. Accept an Assistant Position at an SFG Level I

Cost

If you are invited to attend the SFG as an assistant, you will pay no tuition. (You will be responsible for all of your expenses, however.) If you are already registered to attend and subsequently accept an assistant position, that tuition will be refunded to you.

Eligibility

You must have held your Level I SFG Cert for no fewer than 9 months at the time you apply to assist. Instructors who have been recommended to assist by their Team Leader are given priority.

Procedure

Instructions for submitting applications are provided on an event-by-event basis. For more information, please contact the Cert organizer from the registration page of the particular event at which you would like to assist.

Details

More details about the requirements for and responsibilities of assisting are included in the official invitation to assist.

4. Attend a One-Day SFG Recertification

Master SFG Instructors arrange special One-Day SFG Recertification events a few times each year. Successful completion of this dense one-day event extends your SFG Certification for two years and gives you our latest progressions and correctives.

Cost

$299

Eligibility

You need only register for the One-Day SFG Recertification prior to your cert’s current expiration date, to qualify for attendance. This means that if an event is listed for December, for example, but your Cert expires in October, you’re okay to attend as long as you are registered before October. There is no maximum length for this carryover.

Procedure

You will be asked to upload a photo of your current Level I SFG Certification during registration, so that your eligibility can be confirmed. Please make sure this is legible.

Details

You will be testing with the Level I requirements.

Schedule

There are no 1-day recertifications at this time. Please check back as we list them immediately as they become available.

5. Video Recertification

This is a new option! Rather than appearing in person to test out your technique and update your instruction skills, you can receive this personal evaluation with a Master SFG via Skype or FaceTime, with 90 minutes to discuss programming, correctives, or other individualized materials.

Cost

$299

Eligibility and Details

You must submit your video recertification request prior to your cert’s current expiration date, to qualify for this option. This option will extend your SFG for two years after the video testing date, but cannot be chosen in succession for your next recertification. (You must choose one of the other options before again recertifying via video.)
