Level 2 Cert: Test Subjects

I signed up to be a "test subject" at a Level 2 Cert this summer.

I pulled this from the FAQ:
Quote:
8.23. What is a Level 2 "Test Subject" and How do I sign up?

The Level 2 Test Subject spots are for people who want to help us test the Level 2 candidates by participating in the training test portion of the certification only. There are no responsibilities other than to show up and be trained. It is a good way to gain some exposure to Level 2 for those interested in going through it at some point. There are no prerequisites to be a test subject. You will attend on Day 2 ONLY, and from 9 am to 1 pm. You can register as a 'test subject' and won't need to enter a code.
Has anyone volunteered before?

What should I be expecting?

I mentioned this to some people in my CrossFit at the Y class last night, and they had a whole bunch of questions. One of them was concerned about scaling for injuries.

Thanks
Kurt

Re: Level 2 Cert: Test Subjects

uhhhh? why would you be worried, they are training to become Level 2 trainers,part of that training I'm assuming is having them scale for the client.
Also part of being a "client"or athlete is saying when you think weight is not appropriate.
Sounds like a fun way of picking up some knowledge. Enjoy.

Re: Level 2 Cert: Test Subjects

From what I've heard you're just a training dummy--the L2 attendees will be tasked to instruct you on one or more of the 9 fundamental movements, and they will be evaluated on their ability to teach the movement, give cues, and correct mistakes you make. Not much chance for injury or need for scaling there since you won't be using anything heavier than PVC pipe or a medicine ball. But you'll get an idea of what the staff at a L2 cert is looking for, which is useful in case you're ever looking to get your L2.

Re: Level 2 Cert: Test Subjects

Thanks, guys. That is more or less what I was expecting (plus a WOD or two).

I think someone newish to CrossFit would make a good test subject, as it would test the candidate's ability to scale appropriately.

Re: Level 2 Cert: Test Subjects

I've been through the Level 2. I was just going to confirm that yes, you are like the "training dummy", or the person that the coach being evaluated will coach.
