As with all certifying bodies, BCRPA makes changes to how courses are offered and the requirements to be considered completed successfully. At this point, BCRPA has implemented new standards for online courses to ensure gym competency – which is welcomed from KINESIOLOGISTS.CA’s perspective!
Here are a few highlights of the upcoming changes to the correspondence / distance learning courses.
- Each course must include a minimum of 3 hours of video assignments. The student is to demonstrate each component of the ICE and the TFL provides them with feedback.
- The video can be pre-recorded or done live via services like Skype.
- The videos are of the student only – they are NOT teaching other people.
- Courses which will require video component:
- Aquatic Fitness
- Group Fitness
- Weight Training
- Personal Training
These changes will be incorporated into the KINESIOLOGISTS.CA correspondence courses immediately. The videos will not be difficult to do, and simply be a review of information presented in the course.
More to come!
