This foundation general group exercise instructor training program will provide  new leaders with a system for designing aquatic fitness programs for apparently healthy populations.  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. This program will provide an excellent overview for teaching safe and effective exercise for both swimmers and non swimmers. Basic Skills, basic movements in shallow & deep water depths, techniques for modifying or progressing intensity will be examined. 


Class design will provide new instructors with a template for teaching

  • Shallow H20  depth programs

  • Deep H20 depth programs

  • Teaching Shallow and Deep H20 depths simultaneously


This enhanced program comes with four video tutorials (guided power point presentation by a Master Trainer). This will help candidates to learn how to design a successful program. WaterART highly recommends this foundation program (or Shallow H20  Instructor Certification if only teaching shallow depth)  prior to any other home study course. This is especially valuable for instructors who have never had an exercise science background.

TO COMPLETE THE  EXAM PROCESS:
The theory exam may be submitted via email (simply email us the exam answers -  you need not re-type the exam questions) OR mail only (no faxing, scanning and/or downloading. We confirm & acknowledge all emails, as well as mailed exams. Assume that exams will take 2-4 weeks to process and mark depending on how it was submitted. Please do not scan, fax, or expect us to download your material from another server or free website program. We can not accept this version because of copyright and liability laws.


We prefer you to Email any questions and exams to us

You have 2 options for completing the practical assessment to complete your Practical Assessment or Practical component to your Instructor Certification: 

1)    Submit a home video via USB stick or DVD of your class (the class design is written out as part of the theory exam - we follow the lesson plan along with your  video submission). We prefer .MOV, MP4, AVI,  Please note that there are full submission details on the exam. You will need to complete a FULL class (45-60 minutes). The exams and marking system for the exam process is in the back of the manual. 

OR

2)    Have an onsite assessment with a Master Trainer.  In this scenario, the person being assessed has to make it convenient for the assessor (i.e. probably go to their location).  Each onsite assessment takes approximately 30 minutes. Note, that it is not necessary for the Master Trainer to attend your entire class or program. When completing your practical component via onsite assessment, you will have to complete the competencies successfully, as described below. 


The Onsite practical assessment with a Certified Master Trainer will include:

  • Answering a couple of oral safety questions as well as teach specific to general group exercise and apparently healthy populations.

  • Teaching a 5-10 minute warm up specific to safety guidelines to general group exercise or apparently healthy populations.

  • Teaching a 3-5 minute Cardio set specific to safety and efficacy guidelines specific to general group exercise or apparently healthy populations.

  • Teaching two 3-5 minute Muscular Strength sets (be sure to perform enough sets & reps or 3-5 sets of 8-25 repetitions) to general group exercise or apparently healthy populations.

  • Teaching a 3-5 minute Warm Down specific to safety and efficacy guidelines.


Competencies are in the Manual; basically you are evaluated based on ( marking templates are included in manual)

1)    Do you understand the exercise objective?

2)    Can we see, hear and understand you?

3)    Is the exercise safe, effective and enjoyable?
