To get the most of your assessment dates, it is paramount that students come prepared. Students should ensure they have watched the video clips, thoroughly read through the manuals and completed all their distance learning workbooks.
Students will need to learn their anatomy and physiology, and principles of exercise, fitness and health in preparation for the 2 theory papers on day two of their assessment. Students will also need to be familiar with all exercises relating to machines (CV and Resistance) and free weights, as shown in the gym manual and video clips as this is the range the assessor will choose from.
Please remember to bring the following items with you when attending your assessment dates:
- Exercise clothing and appropriate footwear
- Towels and toiletries if you wish to shower.
- Pens, notepaper and course material (manuals)
- Your exercise programme cards
- A soft backed A4 ring folder and approximately 8 plastic wallets (this will be for students to organise all their final assessment paperwork).
