You put in the time and effort to earn your SFG II Instructor status; don’t let it slip away!
You have three options for recertification:
1. Attend the 2-day Level II SFG
You need only register for the Level II SFG prior to your cert’s current expiration date, to qualify for the recertification price of $350. This means that if an event is listed for December, for example, but your Cert expires in October, you’re okay to attend for $350 as long as you are registered before October. There is no maximum length for this carryover.
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 $350.
You will attend both days, just as if you were going through for the first time. You will be testing the recert standard, however, concerning push press and jerk. Review those requirements here.
2. Accept an Assistant Position at an SFG Level II
If you are invited to attend the SFG Level II 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.
You must have held your Level II 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.
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.
More details about the requirements for and responsibilities of assisting are included in the official invitation to assist.
3. 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.
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 Level II 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.)
