Reserve Your Spot in an Upcoming Parkour Trainer Certification
Created by the world-renowned athletes of the World Freerunning Parkour Federation, the WFPF Certification Program was carefully developed to encourage the creative, grass roots nature of parkour, while also establishing safe practices and a common vocabulary of movement for progressive instruction to students of all ages. As of 2017, WFPF has certified approximately 800 instructors. The WFPF Certification Program, the only parkour certification developed in partnership with a major insurance underwriter, is the gold standard for the safe and practical instruction of parkour.
WFPF certifications are presented in partnership with the International Parkour federation (IPF) and IPTC (International Professional Training Certification).
