This evidence-based course will provide rehabilitation and exercise professionals with the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required to enhance their practice of exercise testing and exercise training through practical, skills-based, online instruction in pulmonary rehabilitation. Learners will administer and interpret the results of various exercise and functional tests commonly used in pulmonary rehabilitation, including field walking tests. We will also explore aerobic, resistance, and balance training, as well as prescription based on results of exercise tests. Participants are expected to participate in asynchronous online discussions based on self-guided practice exercises and case studies, to complete three short multiple-choice tests, and to submit a final reflective writing exercise connecting course content to their own practice context. Additional course resources include online lectures, video demonstrations, selected readings, and more.

Participants should expect to spend 4-6 hours per week on course related activities.
