Home Study Package
The Breast Cancer Recovery BOSU® Specialist Advanced Qualification was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with breast cancer patients during and after cancer surgery and treatment and into survivorship. Participants will gain a complete understanding of the entire breast cancer process from diagnosis and treatment to reconstruction and survivorship. Our unique and individualized programming will help to improve the patient’s ability to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment. Using the BOSU® Balance Trainer, participants will learn how to prescribe corrective exercises for muscle imbalances and range of motion deviations, as well as exercises to promote lymph drainage.
The coursework is founded on collaboration with the chiefs of breast surgery at Georgetown, George Washington, and Johns’ Hopkins University Hospital Medical Centers, and developed by Andrea Leonard, 34-year cancer survivor, author of “Essential Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors,” ACE Certified Personal Trainer, NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist, and President/Founder of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute.
Coursework research began in 1995 and is now in the 11th edition with updated research added annually.
The work of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute, Andrea Leonard and collaborating medical experts has truly been pioneering in the field of cancer and exercise and has paved the way for many other organizations to follow.
How does the Advanced Qualification and home study differ from other available cancer exercise training programs?
* We are the ONLY organization that emphasizes INDIVIDUALIZED programming. No two cancer patients are the same and their exercise program should be as individual as they are®
* Invaluable training and experience in assessment protocol, including goniometry to measure joint ROM, postural assessments and girth measurements to monitor for lymphedema.
* Ability to ask questions and have them answered in person, through email, phone, and blog.
* Home study participants will gain access to online handbooks and online video modules. Hard-copy handbooks may be ordered for an additional charge.
* Open-book online examination to be taken at home following the workshop/webinar. We believe that the open-book nature of this examination simulates real life situations more closely than anxiety ridden, proctored, examination hall examinations.
* We offer professional development and continuing education as well as a video library for CETI Specialists exclusively.
* Receive a complimentary 2-year listing on our International Cancer Exercise Specialist Directory-bringing clients to you.
* Purchase the Advanced Qualification package and receive a one year membership to the Medical Fitness Network (value $169). The MedFit Network will help you reach new clients who are looking for fitness and allied health professionals with these skills.
