New Pilates Instructor Survival Guide pt.1

Congratulations! The hard part is over and the journey is just beginning. Like all great teachers who came before you, you’re a newbie. Even Courtney Miller was once exactly where you are now.

While you’re figuring out your teaching style and dipping your toes into the beautiful waters of your journey, make sure you take care of the checklist below. This is a series of 3 posts where we’ll review the steps to get started. In this first section, we’ll get the nitty gritty legal stuff out of the way.

GET AN ABN
Register yourself as a SOLE-TRADER and obtain an ABN.
You’ll need to be eligible to work as a sole trader in Australia.

For further information see:

FIRST AID
Every single studio will ask for an up-to-date First Aid certificate.
If you’re dream job comes along, you’ll regret not spending a Saturday afternoon giving mouth-to-mouth to a plastic dummy sooner. Not to mention, it’s a great skill to have in everyday life!

Don’t put this off!

Book First Aid courses in Sydney here:

Now that you have your ABN and First Aid, you can get Insurance! Yay!
