    Evidence has shown that physical activity has numerous health benefits for cancer patients and survivors. More clinicians and oncologists are recommending exercise as a strategy for reducing the side effects of treatment, speeding recovery, and improving overall quality of life. In turn, cancer survivors are seeking health and fitness professionals with knowledge and experience to help them learn how to exercise safely within their capabilities. With the ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer Specialty Certification Exam Preparation Course, health and fitness professionals can prepare for the Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer (CET) specialty certification exam and gain the required expertise for providing safe exercise programs that will help cancer survivors improve their health and enhance their quality of life.

    Working in tandem with the text ACSM’s Guide to Exercise and Cancer Survivorship, the ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer Specialty Certification Exam Preparation Course is the most complete resource for those working with cancer patients and survivors.  The book covers all of the job task analysis points tested in the ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer (CET) exam. Each chapter begins with a list of the CET exam points in that chapter and presents evidence-based information in using exercise to help cancer survivors with recovery, rehabilitation, and reducing the risk of recurrence.

    The online course portion then identifies and focuses on the most important competencies tested in the CET exam. It helps course takers understand the most challenging concepts by providing practical application activities. These learning interactions include case studies as part of every unit where course takers work with five virtual clients representing a range of cancer types, which puts learners in the decision-making role to consolidate and apply their knowledge and skills via real-life scenarios. They will be required to assess each patient’s unique situation, design effective programs, and confront legal issues that could arise. In addition, interactive review questions at the conclusion of each section are supported with immediate feedback that references the text for more information. A unique resources section in the course contains an extensive collection of downloadable forms that will be valuable in working with clients, such as a new client treatment form, an exercise and energy log, and fatigue symptom inventory. Finally, the ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer Specialty Certification Exam Preparation Course closes with a practice exam consisting of 50 questions to test comprehension of the required competencies.

    The ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer Specialty Certification Exam Preparation Course presents the science behind the benefits of exercise for cancer survival and survivorship as well as the application of that science to the design or adaptation of exercise programs for cancer patients and survivors. Armed with this knowledge, health and fitness professionals can help cancer survivors improve their health, take proactive steps toward preventing recurrences, and enhance their quality of life.
