Become a Certified Post-Rehabilitation Specialist (CPRS) and earn continuing education. Augment your professional mastery of functional anatomy and biomechanics behind both everyday and sport movement, including:
Joint mechanics, connective tissue, and muscles required with movement;
Biomechanical analysis of prime movements (i.e., squat, lunge, diagonal forward, and reverse lunge);
Recognizing normal vs. abnormal movement patterns;
How to assess, correct, and apply this knowledge with research;
Designing effective programs based on the principles of Periodization Training and Tudor Bompa;
Identifying weak links in the body and common movement dysfunctions affecting the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, and special populations; and
The foundation of science, assessments, and application science of human movement.
The CPRS program, designed and delivered by Pinnacle Training & Consulting Systems provides a convenient, comprehensive and engaging online process:
Home Study Courses: Access 10 home study courses (comprised instructional video, workbook and practice quiz). The home study courses prepare you for the 125 multiple-choice test and Skills Assessment (oral exam and practical exam). Videos are downloadable, so you can view and learn from anywhere--no internet connection required. View home study course info here.
Test: Review your knowledge with a 125 multiple choice exam.
Review Seminars: Benefit with an online, engaging, real time, 2-day seminar with Chris Gellert, PT, MMusc & Sportsphysio, MPT, CSCS, C-IASTM, CPC / Pinnacle Training & Consulting Systems, LLC / Founder and CEO. View more seminar info here.
