The former Health and Wellness Instructor training program has been updated and is now the Public Safety Fitness Specialist course. This course will be offered commencing in October.
This is a comprehensive course designed for instructors responsible for coordinating, planning, and implementing health and wellness programs at their agencies. Subjects include exercise physiology, anatomy and kinesiology, cardiovascular and resistance training, nutrition, supplementation and steroids, and other various health related topics.
Students will be required to perform a fitness assessment on a public safety employee and interpret the results. In addition to earning a passing score on the written examination, the student must design an exercise prescription for a public safety employee to successfully complete this course.
