Introduction and Overview:
The Nordic Sleep Recovery Coach (SRC) online professional development certificate offers a unique lifestyle skill that can help qualified health, wellness, and fitness professionals offer an important niche coaching service to their clients. The NSRC course materials have been reviewed and approved under Europe Active’s professional development scheme, the Lifelong Learning Programme, receiving the maximum allowable annual learning recognition of 10 hours (equivalent to credit points).
Sleep loss and problems associated with obtaining sufficient quality sleep are steadily increasing in modern society. This is having a considerable impact on health and wellbeing, far more than most people are aware. We believe that fitness professionals around the globe already have the access and interaction with the general public through existing clubs and services to be able to have a significant impact on improving sleep habits and behaviours, thus improving health and fitness outcomes considerably.
The NSRC certificate is the result of extensive research and development to help provide you with an engaging learning journey underpinned by the latest cutting-edge science. We recognise that an expert fitness professional needs a broad range of knowledge and practical skills to be able to deliver a first-class service. The NSRC offers more than just knowledge, it provides helpful client analytical tools and an innovative sleep strategy process. Studying at your own pace through an interactive, online platform will allow you to fit your education around your life commitments and to learn in conjunction with your personal circumstances.
The NSRC is composed of 5 main lessons and a series of engaging sleep expert interviews. The content covers a broad spectrum of knowledge to provide a solid foundation of data, science, and practical coaching solutions. All the course lessons are taught and assessed in English, therefore it is essential you are confident studying in this language.
