Potential Kay Trainers – Job Requirements

Potential KAY Trainers – Job Requirements

This form will tell you a little more about what is required of our trainers.
Name(Required)
Date(Required)
All potential trainers are required to attend 3 trainings. You will discuss with your TC which will be the best options for you (live, virtual, pre-recorded) and if there are any associated retake fees.(Required)
As a KAY Trainer it is recommended that you have taken our 95 hours of training (basic certification and one of our advanced training options) but it is not mandatory. Trainers receive 50% off the education portion of any of our advanced training options if they have already led their first training. Do you understand?(Required)
I realize that being a KAY trainer is a physical, strenuous and demanding job with lots of unknown obstacles and challenges. You need to be able to do the following items listed. Check all that you are capable of.(Required)
At KAY we have a high standard of professionalism when it comes to working with potential trainees, current and past trainees, your fellow colleagues, members of Team KAY, as well as any other clients that you might interact with on your Kids Yoga journey. This includes, but is not limited to responding to communications in a timely manner (from your KAY email address), giving each person you encounter their due diligence based on their request, and to refrain from complaining or speaking poorly of KAY or other yoga-affiliated organizations before, during or after your live training weekends.(Required)
You will be responsible for finding locations to hold KAY trainings. KAY will help guide you, but you must be able to be independent and responsible and start a relationship with a potential training site. Your (TC) will discuss payment, etc., but you will be in charge of making initial contact, checking the appropriateness of the location, choosing dates for the training, and providing the training location form to the host before your TC makes contact with the training site.(Required)
As a trainer, you are required to lead at least 3 KAY trainings per year. If you own your own studio and will only be doing trainings there, it is ok to do a minimum of 2 per year. Failure to do so may result in your trainer agreement not being renewed.(Required)
You have several options of places to hold a KAY training. Some options include: Community Centers, YMCAs, JCCs, Schools, Preschools, and yoga studios (which are not necessarily our favorite).(Required)
You will have to have at least 2 KAY shirts in your wardrobe. KAY doesn't provide these so you will have to pay for them.(Required)
All trainers must have all of the required supplies for each training. This includes manuals, certificates and clear sleeves, twine and beads for making malas, and some other supplies (items for your bag of tricks like pompoms, hoberman sphere, tingsha bells, props for Yogi Shake, etc.). Are you ok with this?(Required)
All trainers are required to estimate their expenses for each training and run them by their TC prior to booking by filling out the designated Training Proposal form at your TC's request (she will provide you with the sheet to complete). The Trainer agrees to update their TC if major cost adjustments occur and when they are ready to book their travel. The final costs are to be recorded on the Post Training form. How do you feel about this?(Required)
KAY has a marketing team that works hard to fill each training. It is the job of each trainer to work with them to provide information about the local area and to communicate with them in a timely fashion. Are you willing to do this?(Required)
You will be responsible for posting your training events that KAY creates on Facebook and on any other social media that you have. You will be asked to help spread the word and to communicate in the Facebook event and periodically check and respond to comments on the FB advertisement.(Required)
You will be responsible for sharing your Free Kidding Around Yoga Family Class event on Facebook and on any other social media that you have once the web team has created the event and shared it with you. You will also be sure to post inside the event and respond to any comments made in a timely manner. Do you agree?(Required)
After each training we require you to complete and submit a Post Training form telling us about how things went. Your payment worksheet will not be prepared until this form is received. Will you remember to do this?(Required)
After each training we re-book the location if the training went well. Depending on the location we may want to do either 2 or 3 trainings there per year. Will you be comfortable asking the studio contact when we can book the next one?(Required)
All of Team KAY and our Trainers communicate via Facebook and email on a very regular basis. I understand that in order to be in touch and to do my job satisfactorily, it's essential that I check my Facebook messages, the KAY Trainer forum on Facebook, my KAY email at LEAST once per day, as well as respond if applicable, and the Trainer Tribune, a newsletter for trainers that is sent out periodically.(Required)
As a trainer, you will be responsible to keep your personal liability insurance current and to provide a copy of it to KAY each time you renew.(Required)
