Definition of the athlete for this course: “the Sunday athlete who participates in a few races, the young soccer player who practices a few times a week, the high-level athlete”.

Traditional periodization, block, linear, wave, inverse, etc. When it’s time to plan the training for your client, you have a lot of options and it can be difficult to find your way around. In this course, we will demystify the different types of periodization, but more importantly, we will discuss the benefits of such periodization methods and how to include them in your annual planning. Since periodization is a crucial element for the continuous improvement of athletes, the objective of the training is to give health and sports professionals different tools that can be used to improve the performance of their clients.

This course will respond to some of the challenges that health and sports professionals are facing:

– Succeed in setting realistic long and medium-term objectives and plan in advance the means to achieve these objectives.

– “…I always feel like I’m wrong”

– “Dose the workload on the athletes.”

– “Long-term planning of the season and adherence to that planning”

– “I find it difficult to stick to the schedule, because I often prefer to go with my ‘feeling'”

– “We have to navigate between too much rigid planning on the one hand, and lack of planning and direction in training on the other.”

Every healthcare professional who is a member of an order or association must complete hours of continuing education each year. All of our courses are designed to help you accumulate these continuing education hours. However, the number of credits may vary depending on your profession and location. The information below is for information purposes only. We recommend that you confirm with your professional order and/or association.

For your information, Bia education aims to accredit its online education content in the U.S. and Europe as quickly as possible.

All healthcare and sport professionals are welcome to attend the course.

The instructor speaks in French and handout is also available only in French.

Yes, it is possible to extend access to your courses through our Bia membership. This membership allows you, among other benefits, to enjoy extended access to the courses beyond the initial 6 months.

Each health professional who is a member of a college or association must complete continuing education units (CEU) annually. Here is some information about kinesiologists, physiotherapists and physiotherapy technologists.

Kinesiologist, FKQ

All accredited members of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec (FKQ) must accumulate 30 credits of recognized continuing education every two years from the year of their accreditation. These credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ. In order to facilitate your task of analyzing the credits granted to your course, the FKQ Continuing Education Committee gives you access to an equivalency grid.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesiologists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Kinesiologist-kinesitherapist, A.K.K.O.M.Q.

All members of the A.K.K.O.M.Q. must accumulate continuing education units. The association intends to ensure the safety and quality of kinesiology and kinesiology-kinesitherapy interventions, by requiring its members to maintain and improve their knowledge through the many continuing education courses offered annually, and to put their skills into practice while respecting the code of ethics. Credits can be obtained from continuing education offered by the FKQ and/or other organizations recognized by the FKQ.

For each* of your courses at Bia education, you will receive a certificate of participation confirming the number of hours of course received.

*Excluding course not accessible to kinesitherapists, this exclusion will be mentioned in the course description.

Physiotherapist and physiotherapy technologist, OPPQ

In the case of physiotherapists, each member must have a minimum of 45 hours of continuing education units (CEU) during the reference period, which is three years. Of these 45 hours, at least 30 hours must be accumulated in formal learning activities. The remaining continuing education hours can be accumulated in autonomous, formal learning activities or in a combination of both categories.

A CEU is equivalent to one hour of course, which is the actual time spent by the member to acquire or update his or her knowledge or skills. In the context of a formal activity, the member is in a learning situation when acting as a participant. Time spent on breaks, meals or any other activity without academic content should therefore be subtracted from the calculation of CEUs.

A formal learning activity is defined as an activity designed and delivered by experts in the subject matter and with a predetermined structure, content, objectives and duration. All the course offered by Bia education are therefore likely to be considered as a formal learning activity. During your course at Bia education, you will receive a certificate attesting to the number of hours of continuous education granted to the event.

Then, it is the physiotherapist’s role to define whether the suggested training theme is related to his or her practice and will allow him or her to optimize his or her professional competence.
