Medical Exercise Specialist Advanced Skills Workshop

banner-MET-Skills-WorkshopMET Advanced Skills workshop is a 2-day onsite workshop that allows you to learn and refine your skills in each area of medical exercise training/post rehab fitness. The course is taught by “Master Medical Exercise Specialists” trained and certified by the Medical Exercise Training Institute. Each instructor has more than 10 years experience working solely with MET clients.

So you have just received a new referral form a local physician you have worked on to develop a referral relationship for months. But the first referral is a client with significant functional deficits. You need Medical Exercise Training (MET) skills such as ROM testing, muscle testing, assessing function and writing progress reports. But you aren’t comfortable performing these skills. Well the Medical Exercise Training (MET) Skills workshop offers you a hands-on course environment to help you learn and practice these skills.

We have identified 52 essential MET skills that every medical exercise/post rehab professional, regardless of certification, must be competent in to produce positive outcomes for their clients.
