This program is the entry level program for learning how to teach a basic Aquatic Fitness class. Whether you are new to the water, a lifeguard or just want to become an aquatic fitness Instructor - this is the program you should begin with. We will explore a variety of movements, techniques and basic body and working positions for both shallow & deep water depths. This intensive training will provide leaders with functional techniques to design safe and effective sessions for a variety of ages, fitness and skill levels. This foundation program will provide you with a complete overview of how to facilitate a safe, effective and enjoyable general group exercise program. You will experience both theory (classroom) and practical (pool) applications to build a well-balanced program which includes exercises to target the cardiovascular system as well as balance the body with stretching, posture and strengthening exercises. NO experience necessary just a love of the water and helping people to move. You will have up to four months after the training to complete the examination process. All exams and marking templates are in the manual to help become successful as an Certified Instructor.
We do recommend that all New Instructors, Personal Trainers, and
enthusiasts take this program to learn the foundation of water program
design before taking other WaterART certifications.
You have up to FOUR MONTHS from your training date to complete both
your theory and practical examinations. The theory exam is a take-home,
open book exam. You email us your exam answers or mail the exam in to be
marked. Sharing exam answers is strictly prohibited. The practical exam
may be completed either via an onsite assessment or DVD/video
