What are your requirements other than proof of insurance/certifications? As a city, we currently hire referees for various sports as ICs, but the process is very simple and doesn’t include much else above and beyond a background check. Do you ask for resumes, past job history, testimonials, a mock training session etc. when you hire your trainers? Any insights would be much appreciated!
When I was a Personal Training Coordinator the following are what I required:
3. Copies of Current Certification(s)
4. Proof of Liability Insurance
5. Conduct a 1-on-1 Consultation (with myself or another trainer)
6. Conduct a 1-on-1 Assessment/Workout (with myself or another trainer)
I would also discuss with the potential trainer what will be expected of them (especially if they’ve never been a contractor vs employee), as some Personal Trainers having never contracted, do not truly know there is/can be a big difference.
Good luck and much success!
