Certified Disability Sport Specialist Training 2014

Join Turnstone as we host a two day Certified Disability Sport Specialist Training by BlazeSports America. During this two-day workshop, participants will take part in interactive lectures, get hands-on training with adaptive equipment, and learn how to complete the requirements to be a Certified Disability Sport Specialist. BlazeSports professionals pride themselves on building the curriculum around the needs and experiences of the participating group.

This workshop is designed to benefit people at all different levels of engagement in disability sport. Through their participation in the CDSS program, volunteers, coaches, and professionals can all demonstrate to employers and organizations that they are leaders in disability sport. The credential signifies the ability to provide safe, effective disability sport programming and knowledge of the latest research in the field. Further, the certification enhances existing credentials such as CTRS, CPRP, CAPE, PT, OT, and others by demonstrating specialized knowledge in disability sport.
