A long-term condition is defined as a condition, illness, or chronic ill-health that lasts longer than three months and that can not be cured. Such as asthma, arthritis, cancer, obesity, diabetes, chronic pain, mental health or heart disease, and more... you'll learn 27 conditions in this course.
Contrary to common belief, exercise referral extends beyond local schemes.
When someone refers a PAR-Q, indicating a medical condition and potential medication use, the gold standard PT qualification does not cover or insure you to work with this client.
The PT, Yoga, and Pilates qualifications assume a client passes a PAR-Q and is apparently healthy. What's more standard exercise, nutrition, and guidance a fitness professional offers could adversely impact a client's condition.
It doesn't mean a person who refers a PAR-Q cannot exercise. Nor does it mean every client requires a GP referral letter prior to training with you. Based on their condition and current status, you'll learn how to safely risk stratify and guide your client with 5* support.
It's reported that 15 million people in the UK have a long-term condition and it's likely your current and future clients will therefore fail a PARQ.
This is where the level 3 exercise referral diploma comes into its own. You'll learn how to carefully apply considerations and adaptations to your client's tailored exercise, nutrition, and behaviour change plans. Ultimately having a lasting impact on their health, wellness, and quality of life.
Upon completion of this course, you'll receive 2x Active IQ certificates that are industry-recognized by CIMSPA. This course is delivered 100% online, with weekly live accountability.
