Our instructors go through a certificate program each year before we start our summer programs. It includes a background. All have done this multiple times so it is something of a formality.Often too they will rent out slots for 'named' businesses like Zumba and Tumbletots so don't actually have to provide instructors themselves. They seem very workable and many work with a business here who uses an app so people can just pay for a gym session wherever they are. Paying gyms fees monthly or yearly seems to be becoming less common and pay as you train seems to be coming in more.
We can't go down the afterschool club route here, they have to be regulated which is a very good idea, trained staff with no criminal records, content of activities checked etc.
I agree it is something that should be mandated. Plus it reduces our insurance burden a little.
