Re: CrossFit Level 1 Course Review - March 2013

Yea. That sentence, to me, is poorly structured. It makes it seem like 80% of the people who take the test pass. I will find out soon either way.

Re: CrossFit Level 1 Course Review - March 2013

One other piece of advice to anyone reading this is to check your spam for your results. A buddy of mine was saying how it had been almost 10 days and no email. Told him to check his spam and it was sent to him three days ago. All of my emails from seminars go to my spam. Just an FYI.

Re: CrossFit Level 1 Course Review - March 2013

Great info for anyone interested.

Remember, the L1 is for people looking to be "certified" to train people. You really shouldn't be paying 1K to learn how to do CF. You're much better off getting some personal instruction from a great coach.

You are correct. We were told at my L1 course that 80% of people that take the test pass. The minimum passing score on the test is 70%. Does that help clear up the confusion?

Re: CrossFit Level 1 Course Review - March 2013

Kind off. Where did you hear 70%?

I have heard 80%, 77% and now 70%. If you do the math on this example from the handbook they say this is failing and computes to 79%. I took the percentages indicated and the number of questions per section to determine this. And yes, I did put this much time in to studying for the test as well.

Re: CrossFit Level 1 Course Review - March 2013

Found this in the participants handbook:

1.6 LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATE TEST

The cut-point (I.E.passing score) for the test of 35/45 or 77% was determined by an industry accepted process called
Scalemark. Utilizing the Scalemark process CrossFit’s Advisory Panel decided upon the cut-point relative to the
minimum knowledge that new CrosFit trainers should be able to demonstrate.

A point to note, there are 50 questions in the test however, 5 of them are trial questions and will not count towards your score. You will not know which questions are the trial questions as they are not identified.
