Swim England developed and launched the Level 3 Aquatic Activity for Health qualification this year, giving instructors working in exercise referral settings the confidence to set and deliver water-based exercises for customers coming through health referral pathways.
The Level 3 Aquatic Activity for Health Qualification builds on the Level 3 GP Exercise Referral. It develops your knowledge and skills, giving you the confidence to set and deliver water-based exercises for customers coming through health referral and physical activity pathways.
Duration: 2 days, 9am – 5pm on Wed 7th and Thurs 8th November
Venue: The Lakeside Centre Killingworth, NE12 6SA
Any Level 3 Health Referral Instructor who want the knowledge, skills and confidence to set and deliver water-based exercises to people who come through health referral and physical activity pathways.
GP exercise referral schemes offer physical activity to those who need to improve their health and wellbeing. Current Level 3 Gym Referral qualifications only cover gym-based exercises and when water-based exercise is offered it tends to be in the form of aqua aerobics classes; these are led by instructors who are not appropriately qualified to deal with the customer’s health needs.
The Swim England Level 3 Aquatic Activity for Health Qualification builds on the Level 3 GP Exercise Referral, bridging this gap between dry land and water-based exercise. The course goes through the properties of exercising in water including physiological effects, benefits and exercises for a range of mild to moderate health conditions.
