At NESTA and The Spencer Institute, we work tirelessly to support our graduates and students, and we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic situation playing out globally. As your certification provider, we share some of the same concerns of those who may be affected by this pandemic. If you are a trainer, you will see that some clients are affected by quarantine – in turn, affecting your schedule and work. If you’re a coach, it is assumed that you will support clients who may come to you with concerns over the spread of COVID-19. Our clients often look to us as an authority for information to be healthy and well. Staying informed is important. Please refer to the guidelines enacted within your specific region, state or country. For our graduates and students in the USA, visit the Centers for Disease Control for guidance.
For all other students and graduates operating outside of the USA, we would like to remind you of the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for operating in times of potential exposure (click logo below). Your health and safety are a priority, and there is no need for panic or extreme actions on your part. In addition to knowing the guidelines from the WHO, it is also imperative to operate within the rules and policies of any organization you provide service to.
Our Trainers and Coaches who deliver service online will be less impacted by restrictions that limit crowds. If you are interested in shifting your delivery to an online model, then we want to make this easier for you by extending our Online Coaching Certification program to each of you, at no cost with any certification/certificate program purchase. You may access this complete course by clicking on the seal (linked, below).
As health and fitness professionals, we are expected to fulfill many roles. Our purpose in delivering this message is to provide you with support and resources at a time when getting accurate information can be difficult and confusing. As always, we would love to hear from you – please connect with us on Facebook.
