If you obtained your MES, PRCS or MEPD certification prior to January 2012 but this is your first renewal, we ask you to complete the Medical Exercise Foundations, which is part of the new and updated Medical Exercise Specialist Training series. This will give you updated guidelines and protocols on medical exercise training.
