NEW FOR JUNE 2016!
Pilot course based on the original EXTEND training.
We can see that there are many caring people out there with a world
of knowledge and experience, who would make excellent exercise teachers,
especially for those with long term conditions and age problems.
This course is designed for the recruitment of potential teachers,
who may not otherwise be able to access a course, without prior learning
in the exercise field.
See our courses page for more information.
