This is the e-learing Pediatric Exercise Testing. During this course you will learn how to conduct a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) in children and how to analyze and report CPET data. Furthermore you will learn about the exercise physiology of children and its application in healthy and diseased children. You will also learn about how to perform field tests for measuring fitness in children. The tutor for this course is Dr Tim Takken, PhD.
The course consists of 14 pre-recorded lectures, 4 quizzes and 2 case studies with pediatric CPET data. You can ask questions after every lecture. The study credit is 8 hours.
The course is completed when the student has completed at least 80% of the lessons. After completing the course the student will receive a certificate of completion. The course content is available to the students for 52 weeks.
The course is created using a professional Learning Management System.
