SEMINAR & EXAM DATES IN YOUR TOWN
If you cannot come to New York for the length of time required to take the 7 Day Seminar and the 3 Day Exam, and 10 people from your city sign up for the workshop we can arrange for the Seminar and/or the Exam Session to be held in your city.

3 DAY EXAM DETAILS
Before attending the 3 Day Exam Session, You are required to attend the 7 day seminar in order to master all the necessary skills. To attend the 7 Day Seminar, it is essential to study and learn all the dances in the Instructor's Video on your own and /or by attending Joneeba classes in New York at Djoniba Dance & Drum Centre. After the seminar you will have a period of one to three month to study, consolidate and practice your acquired skills before the exam date.

WRITTEN EXAM: The written exam is a multiple choice exam, with the exception of a few fill in the blank questions. The fill in the blank questions test knowledge that you will need at the tip of your tongue when talking to participants or other health professionals. The exams are not intended to be overwhelming or impossible to pass. For those who do not pass the written on the first day, there will be a correction class. Then, for another fee, you can retake the test on the third day. You should be more concerned with mastering the information rather than passing the test. And if you do master the information, then passing the test will not be a problem.
Exam tips- To study for the Joneeba© Instructor Certification Manual, first read the manual. Then go over each objective at the beginning of the chapters. If you have a good grasp and knowledge of the objectives, you should be able to answer the exam questions.

DANCE EXAM: It is required to know all the dance moves included in the instructor's video, their names, the corresponding rythms (by clapping or playing an instrument), how to dance on tempo, and how to teach and break down the dances.
