Approximately 9 days prior to your IMT, you’ll receive a link to download your Release Kit. This Kit will contain your Training Release, and from it you’ll be allocated one or two tracks to learn.
Your first task is to familiarise yourself with your Training Release. This means trying to learn your allocated track/s as best you can before Day 1 of your IMT. You will also receive access to your program-specific Handbook and other documents and videos that will help you prepare for Days 1 and 2.
For In-Person IMT formats, you will need to bring to Days 1 and 2:
- a device (smartphone, tablet or laptop) to access your Release Kit and module resources (all of our IMT Handbooks are provided in a digital format only)
- your choreography notes from your Training Release
- a towel
- several changes of clothes
- lots of food/snacks to fuel your full days of training!
Rest assured, over the two days, your Trainer will teach you everything you need to know to become an awesome Instructor!
9 days before IMT, you’ll gain access to your 8-week roadmap to guide you (and your mentor) through your 8-week pathway.
You will have spent the last eight weeks in the lead up to your Day 3, working super hard to master your choreography, technique and coaching. So now it’s time for it all to come together! On your Day 3, you’ll be randomly allocated a minimum of 3 tracks from your training Release, which you’ll then need to present. Upon meeting the criteria to receive a “PASS” you will then have become an internationally certified Les Mills Instructor!
Days 1 & 2 : At the completion of your second day you will be marked as “Attended” or “Support Requested”. An “Attended” outcome means you are on the right track to begin your eight-week pathway and your journey towards certification. An “Support Requested” outcome simply means there are some areas your trainer has identified where you need a bit of extra help – and that’s OK! Our amazing Instructor Specialist team will be available to support your continued certification journey, and to help ensure you are on track to pass.
Day 3: At the completion of your Day 3 training you’ll receive a “Pass” or a “Resit”. A “Pass” outcome means you have met the required criteria and are now an internationally certified Les Mills instructor. A ‘Re-sit’ outcome means that you have not met one or more of the required criteria. If you receive a Re-sit outcome, our Instructor Specialist team will contact you to advise of the options available, so that you can attempt another Day 3*.

No. You may only purchase music once you are fully certified (i.e., have successfully gained a ‘Pass’ outcome from your Day 3). Once certified, you can then purchase only the Release Kit for that program you are qualified to teach.
If a Quarterly Workshop falls in the eight-week period between Day 2 and Day 3 then, yes you can attend. However, you will be unable to purchase new music until after your Day 3 training has been successfully completed and you have been Certified.
