Does it matter where I'm located?

No, you can be located anywhere to access our resources and certifications. All our videos are designed to communicate visually, so you can enjoy our videos and tutorials even if you have just a basic understanding of English. If you're a coach, we do suggest you have a good understanding of English to pass the certifications, even though all our knowledge base articles can be translated into your language using the Google Translate widget on Chrome.

Can I certify as a cheerleading coach with CCA?

Every country, region, and event provider has different requirements for cheerleading coaching. Our certifications and courses work alongside coaching requirements in your area:

  • Cheer coaches: you can take any of our courses as a learning tool and proof of CPD (Continuing Professional Development).
  • Fitness instructors: you can take our CHEER PRO Dance Fitness course as a complementary teaching tool to your ETM or other Fitness Qualification required by your country, organisation or insurance provider.
  • Dance teachers: you can take our CHEER PRO Dance Fitness course as a complementary teaching tool to your dance qualification required by your country, organisation, or insurance provider.
  • Newcomers: you can take any of our courses or modules as an ongoing learning tool; however, please check with your insurer, event provider, or local organisation for any coaching credentialling and safety certifications you may require.

How long does it take to complete a course?

Everyone is different; the courses and modules are designed to be flexible according to your schedule. As a guideline:

  • CCA Course Modules: each module should take 2-3 days to complete thoroughly. If you need to spread it out, we suggest you aim to complete each module over 2-3 weeks.
  • CCA GOLD: It's possible to complete all 12 modules in three months if you're doing a "full-immersion." If you're working around existing commitments, you can easily do this within six months - one year. There are no time limits to complete the full CCA Gold.
  • CHEER PRO Dance Fitness: It should take 1 month to complete based on your schedule and your background in dance, cheer, or fitness. If you require more time to complete, you can always extend your completion time by getting a CCA Coach Membership.
  • LICENSED CLASSES: Licensed class formats and modules are a more full-time commitment and business model offered to professionals as an official affiliate of CheerConditioning.Academy. Before you look at delivering licensed classes, we require completion of the CHEER PRO Dance Fitness module and an existing dance or fitness qualification.
