Our programs are the only nationally recognized and insurable programs, of their kind, available in Canada today. PFIC programs are fully insurable via PFIC Canada Insurance Program.

We focus on education, and continuing education, and the protection of our industry in Canada.

We do not charge memberships for additional services, everything we have is offered to our certified instructors at no additional fees, via our website and Social Media Pages.

We provide continuing education in the form of re-certifications, master workshops, safety equipment, additional online continuing educations courses and medical findings that are relevant to today's industry, along with continued support throughout your 2 year term of valid certification.

With over 200 nationally certified instructors, PFIC Canada is an obvious choice for education in the Canadian pole industry.

We pride in live instruction, guaranteeing the level of education received. Online courses in physical activities are not deemed a safe option for physical basics, and therefore not offered by PFIC Canada.

PFIC Canada has been offering program certification since 2010, and will continue to strive to be known as a safe, valuable, and viable option for safe instruction to pole professional Canada wide.

Previously challenged and accepted to qualify for CECs from various provincial and national fitness organizations.  Unless otherwise stated in the description, we classify prior certification as a nationally recognized certificate or degree in field.
