In-Class Course Schedule:
The In-Class Weight Training course usually runs over the weekend on a Friday evening 5:30 to 9pm and Saturday and Sunday 8:30 to 4pm, at a central location in Victoria, BC. If the dates don't work for you, we have private options as well. These courses are also always available online.
After the weekend, you will be asked to submit a final assignment, and you will have two months to do so. Once we've reviewed this, we will send you your certificate (provided you have the prerequisites you need).
How to get Certified:
Once you have your Weight Training certificate from Body Blueprint, if you wish to gain BCRPA certification, you are required to then complete your Instructor Competency Evaluation (ICE). We can walk you through this and evaluate it for you.
BCRPA will take about 4 to 6 weeks to approve your ICE, in which time you can practice writing Weight Training programs for friends/family/clients.
Then you can move onto the Personal Training Course.
