When reviewing the Instructor Certification levels, please note that each Instructor level corresponds with a belt level that you would be certified to teach at your home location. Once you complete a level, your teaching hours return to zero and you work your way back up to a new certification level.
You will be required to successfully pass a new KMC Instructor course each time you desire to move up a level (regardless of the teaching hours you accumulate at each level).
