Re: Top 10 Ways to Avoid Giving a Client Rhabdo

It's been made clear from previous attempts to legislate licensing for fitness trainers that several exemptions are almost certain to be given. School sports coaches for one would be exempt, which ironic considering that schoolage sports probably constitutes the largest contributor to injuries. In Maine for example, a high school football coach only need to pass the $40 UM/MCSC/Maine Coaching Eligibility Course (approximately 10-15 hours), a basic first aid class, and CPR/AED. That's pretty thin, if you ask me. Subjects such as "dealing with the media" are key parts of the curricula.
