Your certificate will be issued and emailed to you to the participant’s email address you provided us within 2 weeks after the completion of one of our courses/seminars.
Since you won’t be subject to an exam at the end of our courses, the certificate issued is a certificate of attendance and therefore you won’t be able to title yourself as a Burgener Strength certified coach. Nevertheless you will be able to use your certificate to apply for CEU’s and also to mention that training on your resume.
No. Our courses don’t grant a certification, therefore, those who attended aren’t required to reattend. Nevertheless, since we are constantly updating and improving our courses, people might benefit from retaking the courses, not only to consolidate knowledge but also to add more “tools to their toolkit”, and the best thing is that they area allowed a 50% discount if they choose to retake one of the courses they previously attended.
You should seek medical advice if you are injured and have the clearance from your doctor in order to be able to lift weights with us.
Of course you can! Your experience won’t certainly be diminished if you are somehow unable to perform physically, since our courses are mostly about teaching people how to teach people to lift. Although we will have several practice sessions during our Burgener Strength Weightlifting Level 1 and Level 2 seminars, the biggest portion, however, is reserved for lectures, and you will be more than able to participate during those practice sessions with your input and questions.
