After completing their training this October, Elsa Nail, MSPT, and Maria Portela, PTA have received their Aquaticist℠ credential, and Kara Morales, MSPT, ATRIC, MAq, has received the title of Aquaticist℠ Instructor. They spent two weeks in sunny Orlando, FL, to receive the training they needed to complete their studies.
To achieve their titles, they each undertook a challenging 84 credit hours of training over the span of the two week intensive course. They applied their studies in the pool, demonstrating the knowledge of aquatic therapy that they had learned in the classroom. Each of the Aquaticist℠ candidates also completed over 250 hours of pool therapy prior to receiving their credentials.
