Face to Face Workshops

The objective of these workshops is to give instructors an overall understanding of the differences between older adults and those younger than this group, to give you the resources and skills to design and deliver an interesting, effective and appropriate older adults class, and to prepare you for the challenges that teaching this age group presents. 

All courses are fully accredited by Physical Activity Australia and Fitness Australia.
