Level 1 - Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics
Level 1 Anatomy, Physiology & Biomechanics
Level One Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics
Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics are comprehensive aspects required to understand sports performance and how to improve it. It is essential for coaches to recognise that not all sports have the same level of technical and complex movements. Knowing how the body works is important when developing coaching programmes for different functional activities such as flexibility, strength and stamina, to ensure the athlete has the best education for their sport, can avoid creating imbalances within the body and know how to prevent injury. This will enable athletes to achieve their potential in their sport and reach the excellence required for optimum health and fitness.
Who is the course designed for?
- Those who wish to study the specialist aspects of the body and how it works in relation to pole sports
- Fitness and or dance instructors wishing to become a pole sports coach
- Those who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of pole sports
- Those who wish to coach regional, national and world pole sports athletes
- Those who wish to progress to Level 1 Pole Sports Coach and further IPSF coaching programmes
What does the level 1 certificate qualify me to do?
On successful completion of the course with a minimum pass rate of 80%, the Level 1 Certificate in Anatomy and Physiology can be used towards CPD requirements and as a prerequisite for other EPIC courses. Learners will be able to progress to Level 1 Pole Sports Coach and further IPSF coaching programmes including the Level 3 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics for advanced level coaches.
What are the pre-requisites to attend the course?
There are no pre-requisites for this course, but it is one of the prerequisites for all IPSF coaching courses.
How is the course delivered?
The IPSF Level 1 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics is delivered as an online e-learning course. It will be split into the following phases:
Phase 1- Online study and assessments
Phase 2 - Online final written assessment
Phase 3 – Online final practical assessment
Throughout the taught programme the theoretical understanding of how the body works in relation to pole sports is threaded through the technical and practical skills both by discussion and review of course materials. You will be assessed through an independent online assessment at the end of the course.
Successful candidates who achieve 80% pass rate or more will receive a certificate.
On successful completion of the IPSF Level 1 Certificate in Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics, learners will be able to understand:
- The skeletal system
- The articular system
- The muscular system
- The nervous system
- The respiratory system
- The cardiovascular system
Demonstrate an understanding of:
- Movement analysis
- Flexibility development
- Strength development
- Warm up and cool down
All candidates will receive high quality downloadable resources to support the qualification.
