Description

The Exercise is Medicine® Professional Credential Workshop is an innovative and unique webinar series developed by the American College of Sports Medicine.

This course will focus on the following competency areas: professional preparation necessary to safely and effectively assess, develop and lead exercise in an Exercise is Medicine setting; development of the marketing and communication skills needed to work within the health care system; and development of the skills needed to support sustained behavior change.
