Requirements For This Step
The Personal Training ICE involves both a written and an in-person component. For the in-person evaluation, you will need to ask friends/family members to act as "clients". You will also need to obtain permission from a local fitness facility to use it for your evaluation.
Completing the ICE Component
The ICE component is completed with a qualified ICE Evaluator. Each fitness specialty will have different requirements. Prices for the ICE typically range from $60 - $200.
Before starting on this process:
When you have completed and passed your ICE, your Evaluator will inform the BCRPA office.
Note: ICE package processing may take between 5 to 10 business days.
Your BCRPA Fitness Registration provides you with an insurance policy that covers you to work with classmates and members of the public while completing all required practical components, including your ICE evaluation.
For this insurance to be valid:
- You must have valid CPR and First Aid certification at all times; and
- You must complete all practicum and ICE requirements, and
- You must complete and pass a Core Specialty module before your First-Year Registration expires.
Once you have completed all registration components and are a BCRPA Registered Personal Trainer, the BCRPA group insurance program does not cover your work as a Personal Trainer.
However, a comprehensive package is available at a reduced premium for BCRPA Registered Personal Trainers. Click here for more information regarding personal training insurance options.
Once you have completed the 3 steps listed above, your specialty will be added to your account on The Registry® of Fitness Professionals.
