CAVEMANROM is for athletes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters, Crossfitters, Kettlebell enthusiasts, and everyday people. It is for everyone that wants to move better, function better, and feel better.
The natural progression in CAVEMANROM is mastering the bodyweight movement first, then add a light load to force more stability and increase ROM under load. The load is light and appropriate. Nothing in CAVEMANROM is about speed, reps, weight, or setting a time. Everything in CAVEMANROM is about improving, injury-proofing, increasing range of motion, increasing all aspects of mobility.
Those who successfully pass, receive a certificate, and be allowed to call themselves a certified CAVEMANROM Trainer under Cavemantraining, or:

*the word trainer can be replaced with “instructor” as such: Certified CAVEMANROM Instructor L3.0

How does it work?
Anyone anywhere in the world can participate in this online kettlebell course, all you need is an internet connection, and video recording device in the form of a smartphone, go-pro, or camera.
Directly after you sign-up you will receive several links to download the study material in the form of PDF, and/or video. You can then study at your own pace, complete exams, and submit assessments at your own leisure, as long as that’s within the time assigned to complete this course. You will get your own assessor with whom you can communicate and ask questions.
How long does it take?
A seasoned kettlebell enthusiast could potentially go through the material, complete the exams, submit the assessments and pass in 7 to 10 days. A physically conditioned and flexible person but a novice to kettlebell training could potentially do the same thing in 4 to 8 weeks. Most people like to take their time and spend several hours a week reading, completing one or two exams and submit an assessment, as long as there is regular time devoted to the course each week, one can complete this course within 8 weeks on average. Each participant will have 6 months to complete the course, no exceptions other than those who request for an extension on physical assessments, meaning that an extension can be provided, for example, to brush up on your technique and submit your video(s) up to 12 months after the start of the course.
Cavemantraining has an extremely high standard and a 100% exam and 80% physical pass grade is required to receive a certificate. The exams are open book. The assessments are physical and need to be correct before receiving a passing score, the physical assessments are the only parts of this course for which an extension can be requested, which will be assessed on a case by case basis. There are no physical demands that will be put on the students like having to complete 100 reps of a certain exercise, technique and the ability to perform the exercises is what will be judged. When you continue your education with us you will have plenty of opportunities to go through physical and mental challenges to test your ability, this is not that stage.

When do I need to re-certify?
Any trainer that advertises their certification needs to re-certify every 5 years. The cost of re-certification is never more than 25% of the initial certification cost. Your previous certification level is automatically renewed if you take the next level certification, whether passing or not. That means if after 4 years you want to stay current, you can take level 3.1 and no matter what, this keeps your L3.0 active, hence, valid for another 5 years.
Does online certification provide the same quality?
Yes absolutely, and even better. Most in-person certifications are usually completed within 1 or 2 days, our online certification takes much longer than that, provides the student with the time to study properly, and repeat subjects that might require additional work.
