Education Company, Fitness Education Online, have just released their new CEC course ‘Training Clients with Physical and Intellectual Disabilities’. This course is the first of its kind in Australia and currently the only Fitness Australia registered CEC course in the category of training people with disabilities.
The new CEC course was released based on responses to a survey conducted by Fitness Education Online in which members were asked what topics they would like to see covered in an online summit. The overwhelming response from their members was that when it came to training clients with special needs (both physical and intellectual) there is very little available in terms of CEC courses covering these topics.
Fitness Education Online then gathered some of the leading experts across Australia, New Zealand and the USA who currently work exclusively with clients with special needs and put together an online summit ‘Training Clients with Special Needs’. This summit formed the basis of the course that is now a registered CEC course.
According to the Australian Government’s Institute of Health and Welfare website, currently 18% of the Australian population is living with a disability (approximately 4.4 million people). Of those 4.4 million people 32% have a profound disability (around 1.4 million) and 23% have a mental or behavioural disability.
Fitness Education Online Chief Executive Jono Petrohilos states that his goal is for this section of the population to have the opportunity to exercise in a safe, fun and effective environment with qualified trainers and for the trainers to have the skills and confidence to safely train this population.
