This Aquatic Post Rehabilitation Instructor for General Populations Certification Program is designed to give a comprehensive overview of exercises suitable for a general population recovering from injury, post replacement surgery, and other debilitating conditions that prevent them from enjoying full mobility with daily living. In other words, this program is for less fit population or older adults.


The learning objective is to understand anatomy, safe joint range, muscle action and overall fitness levels requirements to be able to design and oversee safe exercise programs that will help each person return, as close as possible to, or improve upon, their previous levels of mobility.  The goal is to provide overall mobility for recovery. Therefore the regions of focus will cover suggested exercises for : the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas of the spine, and the shoulder, hip , knee and ankle joint areas. These exercises will provide  the Instructor with a generic base of safe, adaptable movement that can be combined to create programs suitable to each client's personal needs. Some people with a chronic condition may never advance beyond a certain stage for recovery – however this does not mean they have not improved their quality of life. We train to work  on each person's ability not disability.


Pre-Requisite: Two levels of Certified WaterART Certification OR Allied Health Care Provider. Ideally, candidates would register and order their materials in advance to review so that they may benefit with the course. Should you not have the pre-requisite we recommend that you do this training as a workhop for 16 hours or 16.0 CECs - see link.

Please note that this is not an anatomy class. The class is about teaching "simply" what the disorder is HOW that disorder effects the muscles in terms of muscle balance. You will learn what rehabilitation exercises you do for that disorder and how to progress those exercises. In other words, this is a practical application of rehab exercises.


How to Complete the Practical  Exam Process:The practical assessments must be completed via a mailed submission via DVD/USB stick of 1 week of any of the case study program cards (as written out for the case study). We highly recommend that you keep the filming of the program simple with yourself in a pool or with someone who is currently NOT your rehabilitation client. Ideally we would like to see how you move and progress the exercises in the water -so that you optimize the properties of water and protection of water. Ideally, you will be in the water with the "client". Please film the program in a home POOL or at a center when it is quiet. To mark your practical assessment, we need to be able to see, hear and understand your exercise goals and objectives so that we may review your technique for safety, efficacy and purpose. Also, the session should follow along what you have written out. Please note: for liability and virus reasons, WaterART Fitness cannot download video streaming files from YouTube or Private Google accounts. You will have to mail the hard copy of the practical assessment and verify that you are indeed the person on the video. We recommend rendering the video in VLC format and submitting via a USB STICK. Should you want the USB stick returned please mail a self addressed envelope to us. Additionally, mail the stick in an envelope that cannot easily be ripped open by machinable mail. Sharing exams and materials is strictly prohibited for both liability and copyright reasons.

Scope of Practice: Professionals are required to promote and keep up to their provincial /state standards. Only Registered Therapists may promote that they are a therapist or facilitating aquatic therapy. Non registered professionals may work with Post Rehabilitation clientele or when the client has been released by medical provider. WaterART will issue POST Rehabilitation Specialist Certifications Diplomas to Non Allied Health Care Providers or Non Registered Professionals. Candidates who possess officially registered allied health care provider outside of WaterART training will be issued Rehabilitation Specialist Qualifications.
