The possibility of free education in the field of prenatal and postpartum exercise and obtaining an international certificate

The Faculty of Kinesiology Osijek actively participates in the project “The New Era of Pre- and Postnatal Exercise – training for instructors and trainers of various forms of physical activity in the field of online provision of exercise for pregnant and postpartum women” carried out by Gdansk University of Physical Education and Sport from Poland. The project is international and a number of experts from all over the world have been engaged. As an expert in the project, the teacher of the Faculty of Kinesiology Osijek, Assoc. Ph.D. Iva Šklempe Kokić, and our students have the opportunity to participate in free online education for exercise instructors with pregnant women and women in the period after childbirth. The education program contains 150 hours of instruction that includes theory and practice, and is conducted online, in English (it is not necessary to know English perfectly, but you need to know it at a level that you can communicate in it). Lessons are held in the afternoon through live online lectures, but it is possible to view them at other times as they are all stored. Participants who pass the final exam receive a certificate, and those who pass the practical exam (also online) receive the “Exercise in Pregnancy and Postpartum” Lifelong Learning qualification (EQF level 4) in accordance with international standards EuropeActive .

Application is made by filling out a form, after which candidates have a short motivational interview. The program starts on November 7 and ends on December 4, 2022. It is primarily suitable for students in their third and higher years of study, and we invite students to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
