QUESTION: What style of class constitutes a BCRPA approved group fitness class  for obtaining credit for the 8 hours?  Would Zumba or a spin class count?

ANSWER: “Any class where the instructor is leading a group, so long as it falls within Scope of Practice, will qualify for the 8 hour practicum. I would be careful of teaching at Oxygen because hot classes are not covered under group liability insurance.” – BCRPA

QUESTION: Does a BCRPA certified Group Fitness instructor need to participate in the group class for the practicum hours to count?

ANSWER: “It isn’t as black and white as someone needing to be in the room, per se – if there is a supervisor in the facility who is aware that this person is teaching the class and is willing to vouch for them/step in should a safety issue arise, the hours will count.” – BCRPA
