Once date for hosting a class is set, we will hold your spot for that area and not consider anyone else for instructor training.

Costs, Profits, and Licensing
No other instructor in your area will be trained in the modality you teach unless you submit less than 6 classes a year to teach or tail to renew. You will be added to the Instructors Only FaceBook Page, so you can receive support and updates.
Teach when and how many times you want to teach and decide what to charge. There are no percentages paid to Barefoot Masters, Inc. you keep all the money minus the cost for the educational materials.
Purchase hard copy materials or the online version which is reasonably priced. You want to teach, then teach. We develop the materials so you can do what you do best and that is to teach!
Our license agreement is like when you went to massage school or college. The school purchases a license agreement to use the educational materials and each student buys their books. The teacher teaches by using the materials, however they may not copy or change the book due to copyright infringement.
The license agreement for said modality is $399.99 with $75. for additional ones, and is good for a year with a renewal of $49. for each modality in your renewal year. This renewal date will be set up for automatic payment. If you decide to opt out, just call.
We will add you to the instructor list on our website. You will need to send a head shot and resume.
Hope this helps you to get started. Let us know if you have any questions.
