The Personal Trainer (occupational skills qualification) is our basic Personal Training qualification. It provides the skills to offer instruction to apparently healthy adults. This qualification forms part of our full occupational qualification, the National Certificate in Fitness (NCIF). The NCIF includes a module on “Special Considerations”. The “Special Considerations” module includes adapted training and considerations that would be adopted when training clients with various injuries & disabilities (spinal cord, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, multiple sclerosis), as well as clients with HIV and AIDS, and the workplace polices relative to the above.
