• Do you have an age requirement? 

Yes, all program attendees must be 18 years of age. 

  • What if I don’t pass the final tests?

We are seeking excellence in our teacher training graduates and have high standards for a passing score. If you do not pass you will be given 12 months to practice your skills and submit a video to Jill Franklin for approval. The first video submission review is complimentary. Following that, if a passing score is not granted there is a $100 (usd) fee for all submissions thereafter. If you fail a maximum of (3) times, you must retake the course.


  • Where can I complete the CPR & First Aid Course?

There are many online options. We recommend the National CPR Foundation CPR/AED and First Aid course for only $20.95. This course is required to receive your Aerial Physique Teacher Training Certification.


  • I’m interested in taking the course but don’t intend to teach. Is this allowed?

Yes! Everyone comes to our course for different reasons. Many aerialists attend to gain more awareness and understanding of their own practice. If this is your intention, please indicate it on the application.


  • Is your program accredited through a national fitness or circus education association?

Aerial Physique Teacher Training is proudly recognized by NASM, AFFA and American Circus Educators.

  • I'm interested in taking the course to obtain CEUs for my NASM or AFFA certification. How many credits is the course good for? 

For NASM 1.9 CEUs and for AFAA 15 CEUs. 


  • Does my certification expire?

Once you receive your Aerial Physique Teacher Training Certification it does not expire. However, we expect that you will stay active in the aerial community as an aerialist and instructor. 


  • Do you offer teacher training in lyra, hammock, rope or trapeze? 

Currently, we only offer aerial silk teacher training courses.
