Train-the-trainer opportunities in Atlantic Canada

Atlantic Canadians! Don't miss out on this one-time opportunity! The CCAA is recruiting trainers for the Functional Fitness for Older Adults Course (FFOA), Functional Activity Measures Workshop (FAM), and the Balls Bands and Balance Workshop (BBB). This is your opportunity to become a trainer for one or all of these workshops/courses and you will increase your community’s capacity to deliver evidence-based physical activity programs to older adults.

Future trainers who are accepted into the program get half off the Train-the-Trainer registration fee and free training in the FFOA course or the FAM or BBB workshop. Participants may also choose to take the FAM or FFOA at the regular fee and not participate in the Trainer course.
