What is a Tutorial?
The tutorial is a guided presentation a Certified WaterART Master Trainer which reviews all the classroom sessions and information (that instructors would typically receive) if attending an onsite training course. Often, more and more instructors are taking our programs via home study and because travel and accommodation are cost prohibitive the tutorials are an excellent tool and investment - to experience more practical information.
The best part about Tutorials is that these DVDs may be reviewed several times especially if the information is new and somewhat overwhelming.

HOW TO COMPLETE EXAM PROCESS FOR COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAMS
Theory Examination involves short answer and practical questions. You may email the answers.
The practical exam involves 5 case studies. This may take a lot of time, however, the process will help you as an Aquatic Personal Trainer become efficient and proficient. We recommend that you use yourself as your first practical case study. You may also utilize volunteers or friends and family as your other case studies. Based on your clients health history, water assessments and fitness goals, you will create 3 program cards for your clients (week 1, 4, & 8 of their training program). The goal of the program cards are to provide quick reference for exercise progression or to help your client improve their performance and fitness. Your program card should reflect how the person did on their water assessment, what you are training as well as some techniques or exercises to motivate or achieve adherence to a program. Additionally, you create a counselling agreement and short business plan - to succeed with your new business.
One of your program cards OR weeks of trainng needs to be submitted via VHS video taped or DVD so that we may see your ENTIRE practical training session. We provide a detailed report card of your skills and where you may need to improve your techniques.
All the paper work or assessment profiles are in the back of the manual. Additionally upon purchase of the course, we will email you the paperwork to utilize to fast track your assessment paperwork & skills.

The practical exam involves completing 5 case studies. We allow you to complete 2 assessments on yourself (shallow and deep water depths as the protocols change). This may take a lot of time. The goal of the case study process will help the aquatic personal trainer become both efficient and proficient. You may choose to utilize volunteers who are friends and family as your other 3 case studies. That way there is not the stress of performing perfect case studies. You will learn by doing. After the assessment and health history profile, the personal trainer will create appropriate program cards for your clients ( week 1,4,8,). The goal is to show exercise progressions of program so that the individual's well being has improved. Additionally, the goal of program cards are to provide quick reference for exercise inventory in case of liability. Your program cards should reflect how the person did on their water assessment, what you are training as well as appropriate duration or sets/reps. To help a client improve their compliance or achieve adherence to a program, the personal trainer will write up a counseling agreement. To help the personal trainer achieve success, the personal trainer will write up a short business plan to succeed with the business of personal training.
