Industry first combines certificates
Zumba has teamed up with the Exercise, Movement and Dance (EMD) Academy and Lifetime Training, one of the UK’s leading providers of fitness and health-based educational courses, to create and launch the new ‘Zumba Combo Qualification’.
Developed and delivered exclusively by the EMD Academy and Lifetime Training, the new qualification combines the teaching certificate in Exercise, Movement and Dance (EMD) and the instructor certificate in Exercise to Music (ETM).
The Zumba Combo is available to members of the Zumba Instructor Network, known as ZIN members, who have already completed their Zumba B1 training.
Those who complete the Zumba Combo Qualification will also have access to EMDP benefits, which guarantees free REPs membership and insurance, discounted PPL music license fees and ongoing teacher support.
The course takes four days to complete and will be launched in London on 23-26 June. Nine courses are scheduled across the UK in July, with further dates secured nationwide throughout August – October.
