Very professionally run course, from the administration side to the delivery and assessment. An indepth course that is widely regarded as the gold standard for UK cardiac rehabilitation and consequently the one that most employers ask for. Five days of in-person tuition, minimum four visits to Phase III rehab, and study the BACPR cardiac exercise instructor manual that you receive as part of the course. Assessment is a case study report and multiple choice exam and viva that are done on a separate assessment day. Very highly recommended!

Overall, this course (in London-at YMCA) was thoroughly enjoyable; the teachers were lovely, extremely knowledgeable, taught very well and made a very intense course-much more manageable!

The content of the course is incredible and really interesting. I would recommend it to any Personal Trainer (like myself) or fitness/healthcare professional etc. as so many people suffer from/are at risk of cardiac diseases (and always will be)!!!

Only downside(s) being one of the rooms; quite small/air con system made it either too hot/freezing cold AND don’t think there should be such a strict time-cap on the exam (in my opinion)…other than that…PERFECT and cannot wait to put all of my knowledge into practice!

Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

The teachers were absolutely brilliant on this course and made such a difficult, theory laden course as enjoyable as possible. Their passion for the subject was very helpful and I feel very lucky to have been in this class. The included work experience was essential to the Course content. and compounded the vital relevance of the theory.

The most thorough training course I have been on outside of university. Very impressed with the standard of teaching as well as the requirement of work experience which I felt I gained a lot from and also the thorough exam procedures which have made me feel very prepared for implementing what I have learnt into teaching the client group. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
