Train up and gain the know-how to design and deliver exercise programmes for disabled people.

With disability affecting 18% of the UK population, the demand for safe and supportive exercise programmes for disabled clients is rising.

Our exercise with disabled clients course is tailored to teach trainers the skills needed to programme and supervise exercise for disabled people. It also covers the principles of exercise for disabled people, understanding the legal and ethical issues surrounding disability, and knowing the implications of conditions and impairments when working with disabled clients.

We offer the course via distance study, helping you to fit your study into your lifestyle, and once completed successfully you’ll receive 20 CPD points when you log the training with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).

This qualification is recognised by REPs in the UK and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

All TRAINFITNESS courses are managed via our online learning portal. A main feature of the portal is the Student Desktop which you’ll gain access to as soon as you’ve enrolled. Through it you can view your online course material, book onto course days, training days and assessment days.

Using the TRAINFITNESS app you can also do all of this on the move via the Mobile Student Desktop. The app is compatible with Apple iOS 8.1 and above and Android Jellybean (4.2.2) and above, and of course you’ll need wireless internet connection*.

The exercise with disabled clients course is delivered via distance study. You’ll work through the online course material, complete the portfolio, and book onto and attend the relevant scheduled assessment day. You’ll submit the portfolio on the assessment day.

Before you can request the qualification certificate, you must satisfy and complete all course requirements. This includes, for example, the online course material which you will complete in your own time and outside of any attendance requirements.

There’s no guarantee that any course will be offered for more than two (2) years from the date you enrol, so you need to make sure you complete the course within this time frame.
