This foundation general group exercise instructor training program will provide new leaders with a system for designing aquatic fitness programs for apparently healthy populations. This enhanced program comes with four video tutorials (guided power point presentation by a WaterART Master Trainer).

We will review program designs for both shallow and/or deep water depths. Instructors will learn aquatic exercise science and programming for the many skills and fitness levels that attend classes.  By the end of the course instructors will learn how to design training for cardiovascular training, muscular fitness, flexibility, posture as well as personal safety skills.

WaterART highly recommends this foundation program (or Shallow H2O Instructor Certification if only teaching shallow depth) prior to any other home study course.
