Yes. The courses are designed to teach all attendees how to effectively train themselves and others on the TRX Suspension Trainer or TRX Rip Trainer. Although the additional knowledge is beneficial, the TRX courses are not limited to a specific profession. The Level 2 courses require that an attendee have taken our STC or GSTC (exception: for SMSTC: one can bypass the Level one requirement if they are a licensed healthcare professional [ATC, DC, PT, OT, MD, PTA] and complete the course prework).

Yes. Course attendees can purchase TRX gear, products or TRX CORE memberships for a limited time after the course at a special price.

 

 

 

What if I can’t find a course in my area?

 

If you do not see a course in your state, check nearby states and continue to check the TRX website, or consider hosting a course at your facility. Feel free to add your location requests here

 

 

 

What is your Professional Education Course cancellation and refund policy?

 

Course registration fees are non-refundable. However, if for any reason TRX cancels the course, registrants will have the option to receive a full refund. Requests to change registration from one course to another must be made at least 14 days before the course date to TRX by e-mail at education@trxtraining.com. Requests made later than that are subject to a $100 rescheduling fee. Registrants may assign their course slot to another student for a $50 change fee.

 

 

 

Do you offer TRX Professional Education Courses Internationally?

 

Yes. We have many International Education Distributors who have TRX-approved Course Instructors and Course Materials to deliver the same best-in-class education worldwide. To find an International course, contact the local TRX Distributor so that they can direct you to a list of upcoming courses.

 

 

 

If I am a healthcare professional what is the course pre-work that is required to take the TRX Sports Medicine Suspension Training Course?

 

If you register for the course and have not taken our STC or GSTC, you will be required to complete some pre-work before the Sports Medicine course.
