Fitness Institute’s courses are supported with a wide range of detailed learning materials. Full video sessions detailing how to design movement programs and train children with games and activities are also provided and these can be replicated for assessments.
A sport, fitness, recreation facility and a mentor are required for this course. Access to an established kids and teens program is ideal, but if this is not possible, scenario-based training situations can be organised with adults.
