Will you please send me a full description of Aerobic & Step Master Instructor< or just a general description of a Master Instructor at something,this is to clarify that some individuals call themselves titles such as' Master Instructors " that they don't actually own. Some companies are assuming that they can create a job title such as ' Master Instructor "so they end up giving titles and names to simple instructors who haven't even passed through a course such as : Step Master or Aerobic Master etc;
Actually one definition of a master instructor is someone qualified to teach others to be instructors to the general public in a fitness (or any) environment. Whether this is the actual case can be proven in the quality of the instructors that the master instructor has taught and by the organizations that accept their programs. Any one teaching CECs for ACE, AFAA, etc. has the title “Master Instructor”. I teach my own CEC course that meet the requirements of all certifying agancies that I know of so far. I also taught for NPTI in Lakewood, CO. And did trainings for employees at a number of facilities that I have worked at.
I am amused by these other answers though. It is very unprofessional to make statements disparaging the credentials of others without knowing what they do and what the titles actually mean. I am sure that some here will say, “It is my opinion and I am entitled to it.” But it is also disrespectful of the industry as a whole to make such comments publicly in a forum such as this. And yes, I hope those here discrediting the title of Master Instructor take my comments to be a direct afront to their “opinion”. If your feathers are ruffled, I am not sorry.
