How to distinguish the important from the unimportant: The skills, knowledge and competencies of fitness instruction – a webinar

Professor Thomas Rieger, Chairman of the Standards Council of EuropeActive, presents the latest European educational standards in fitness instruction. He explains in detail how these have been developed and how you can use them in your own practice.

Good fitness instruction is so important, in part, because the sheer number of options available for training can be overwhelming. This webinar provides an understanding of the criteria you should consider when selecting courses, course providers and course material in fitness instruction.

After viewing this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the main characteristics of fitness instruction services
  • Describe the skills, knowledge and competencies fitness instructors need by emphasising client’s expectations and safety
  • Present how educational standards in fitness are developed
  • Explain the relevant criteria to assess the quality of training courses in fitness
