ONLINE DISTANCE LEARNING TRAINING COURSE

PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS, GYMNASTIC COACHES AND TRAMPOLINE COACHES who hold a qualification that is recognised in their country, can enrol onto the online training course that recognises and takes into account their previous experience.
These candidates will enrol onto the

CANDIDATES WITHOUT a PT, OT or COACHING qualification who reside outside of the UK and who do not have access to a practical course, can enrol onto the STANDARD course, which is a little more comprehensive.

Either option will result in the internationally recognised Level 2 Rebound Therapy practitioner qualification.
