It is great getting additional Biomechanics qualifications as part of the Professional Practice in Personal Training unit, but can we have some video learning material on myCourse for the specialist techniques?
Students asked in a practical session at 1:30pm and by 3:30pm the videos had been shot and uploaded onto myCourse. Students can now see biomechanics techniques being performed correctly, which will help students to revise and practise.
Can we undertake more work with real life clients in the Advanced Training Principles and Professional Practice in Personal Training units?
