In a Hired Live Video Consult, coaches set their rates and calendar availability. Coaches can send their rate sheet out over social media and to their students via email and text. Once a coach gets hired, a notification is sent to the coach letting them know the date and time of the scheduled Live Video Consult.  

Players can send their coach any length video. Players can also record a full length match on FCT or they can load a prerecorded match onto the FCT app through Dropbox. Dropbox seamlessly connects to the FCT app on your device but you need Dropbox app loaded onto device. In addition, Coach or player can log into the FCT website and seamlessly upload a video into the lesson space. 


In order for a Player to hire a Coach, navigate to Hire a Coach tab.

Players search for a Coach and check out their profile. Here is an example of a Coach that can be hired for a Live Video Consult Lesson.

Players can look at a Coach's availability to hire for a Live Video Consult Lesson.

Once the Coach is selected, the Player can select an available time.

After booking, the Player submits payment information. 

A message shows when the payment is successful and the lesson has been scheduled. Then, press the Upload Video from device.

Here is the Live Video Consult Lesson Space opened up.

Here are the options to load video once the camera button in the left corner of the Lesson is pressed. 

Once media is loaded, this is what the Lesson Space looks like.
