It is undoubtedly the case, that there is an increasing crossover between some of the knowledge and skills that would have previously been seen as the preserve of physical therapists (e.g. sports therapists, physiotherapists and osteopaths) and that of the health and fitness professional. Many Personal Trainers, for instance, now regularly perform postural assessments and prescribe corrective exercises around these assessments. This course will particularly boost your knowledge in managing human function in relation to non-specific low back pain, which accounts for 95% of low back pain cases.

With this in mind, as well as increasing your credibility and earning potential as a Level 4 Personal Trainer, this course will give you the ability to integrate a number of therapy related assessments, corrective exercises and lifestyle strategies and open your eyes to the future of personal training.

This Level 4 Certificate will cover:

  • Prevalence and classifications of low back pain
  • Functional anatomy of the low back
  • The psychosocial components of low back pain
  • Communication skills, including a cognitive behavioural approach and motivational interviewing
  • Functional/physical assessment and screening
  • Progressive programme design and lifestyle strategies for low back pain sufferers

To ensure you’re receiving the highest quality of training available from industry leading lecturers and professionals, you’ll undertake a course that’s been meticulously researched and planned. Expect a blend of learning styles, including face to face sessions, online training (with meaningful support while you’re learning via the internet) and paper-based lessons.

You will take part in interactive, online home study modules, a live one day workshop, and a further live assessment day.

Please bear in mind that the qualification will take approximately 8-10 weeks to complete. Therefore, you’ll need access to the internet for the duration of this time.

They exceeded my expectations and I write this review many years after the course I did with them. Wherever I go with my qualifications, the knowledge and experience I gained far out weighs the competition.
