SFL Course, Langley by Aaron Tews (April 8 2015):  http://kinesiologists.ca/wp/bcrpa-weight-personal-training-ice-workshop/

SFLs are generally fitness professionals who have responsibility for overseeing a team of fitness leaders. They are often Fitness Programmers or Managers at fitness facilities and are in a position to hire fitness leaders for their facilities.

SFLs are able to:

  • Perform ICE evaluations to verify the practical competence of new fitness leaders
  • Present workshops in their area(s) of expertise and grant BCRPA CECs (continuing education credits)


  • Current BCRPA registration (out of province registration will be reviewed and assessed on an individual basis)
  • Current First Aid (current within 2 years of issue date) and CPR (current within 1 year of issue date)
  • Resume of practical experience detailing 30 hours of recent supervisory experience as well as 70 hours of on-floor instruction in specialty module
  • Recognized Supervisors course from an established university, college or business school (i.e. Justice Institute, Community College)
  • Instructional Competency Evaluation (ICE) Workshop. Contact the BCRPA office for registration procedures.  
  • Shadow ICE (the shadow ICE will be explained during the ICE workshop)
    • Note: For a shadow ICE you will need to contact a current ICE evaluator. If you are already an SFL or TFL in another practical module (i.e. weight training) you won’t need to shadow but you will have to perform a mock ICE which will be explained during the ICE workshop.
  • Two reference letters (current within 1 year) from a Supervisor or Manager/Owner of a fitness facility indicating competencies
