- 5 Step plan to becoming certified
- How to enroll with ISSA
Often the first step to improving the success of an individual in a youth sport program is timing the teaching of motor skills to coincide with the individual's physical development. However, the majority of physical education teachers and coaches of sport teams are not aware of the developmental sequences of motor skills in children. Obviously, this lack of knowledge would successfully hinder the success of youth sport programs. This course attempts to address this issue by providing a guideline for the developmental sequences of running, jumping, combined fundamental movement patterns (galloping, skipping, and sliding), kicking and punting, over-arm throwing, catching, tracking and object interception, striking, balance, temporal awareness, as well as addressing the issues of stature and weight interrelationship with motor development and performance, body proportion interrelationship with more performance. This course covers the age of development of motor skills, developmental stages of motor skill attainment, performance trends of motor skill development, gender differences in motor skill development, as well as factors influencing the development of motor skills. This course serves as a reference for teachers and coaches of physical education and youth sport programs, and would also be appropriate for any person, or parent who would like to improve their knowledge about the physical development of children. Completion of this course should enable the physical education teacher to develop programs that are age appropriate and introduce motor skills at a time that coincides with the physical readiness. Creating age appropriate programs that optimize physical readiness for skill development will ensure a child's success and enjoyment in the current program, and lay the groundwork for future success in sports and physical activities.
Features online enrollment, online exam and instant grading as well as automatic certificate generation upon completion of course.
I feel confident to go into the work force as a personal trainer now, and I'm excited to start this chapter in my life.
I’ve been searching for the best training a company has to offer for years, ISSA really has it all.

ISSA has remained to be among the leaders of the fitness industry and is still an organization that is nationally recognized and has a good reputation.
My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
My ISSA certifications as a Fitness Trainer, Sports Nutrition Specialist and Strength and Conditioning Specialist has really propelled my career to where it is today.
ISSA made it so easy for me to acquire my certificate as a Certified Personal Trainer, and I would also like to add that the course material was put together very well for me to understand.
The resources ISSA provides (both in hard copy and online) such as the study guide, the coursebook, the chapter summary videos, the exercise videos, and the question board are all very valuable tools...
The course did an outstanding job of addressing issues that arise with the training of seniors.
I was extremely impressed with the overall course and materials ISSA provided; now ISSA has truly prepared me for my future as a personal trainer!
The course was demanding, and required a lot of work, study and effort but this is what separates ISSA from the rest. I would proudly recommend ISSA!
My experience has been great and the support team makes it very easy to complete the course and get back to me with answers to any questions I have very quickly.
From the start, ISSA provided everything I needed to study, practice and qualify for a personal trainer's certification.
