Thank you Ross!

Stephen,
This is the French BEES (Brevet d' Etat d' Educateur Sportif) which is a first step towards becoming a coach/PT or sport scientist.

You also have to take an exam probably a lot similar to a CSCS exam.

As far as the physical tests there are three options:
- Olympic Weightlifting but a guy my size would have to combine snatch and C&P for total of 572lbs (260kg) to get 75% - way out of my league
- PowerLifting but a guy my size would have to combine the 3 lifts for 1,276lbs (580kg) - no can do
- and then there is 'regular' weightlifting described in my previous post.

So you see, I am taking the 'easy' road...
