Exercise as Medicine NZ (EAM) has launched two new online courses designed for exercise professionals wanting to upskill around long-term conditions and exercise - Joints and Bones, and Parkinson’s Pro. These courses are part of a broader suite of foundation courses currently being developed by EAM directors Kris Tynan and Tim Webster.
"As exercise professionals we know that regular activity plays a vital role in helping to alleviate symptoms and better manage the long-term health conditions that are so common in our society. We wanted to help arm other exercise professionals with relevant knowledge so they have the confidence to embrace this emerging market " says Kris Tynan.
Level 1 courses take 3 to 5 hours to complete and 5 to 8 hours for Level 2 courses.
