Special Considerations

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. To accept and train clients who may fall into these categories, it is imperative that you achieve the full NCIF qualification. On successful completion of the NCIF, graduates can continue onto the National Diploma in Fitness (NDIF). The NDIF qualifies you to further expand your skill set and expertise to include Special Population Groups such as the Youth, Older Adults and Exercise & Pregnancy. It also includes Periodisation Training, Sports Conditioning and Personal Development Training.
