Testing

Testing our residents is a required part of being a CB FIT instructor. This helps to track progress and measure success of our classes. These are taken quarterly (four times per year) and measure balance, reaction speed and posterior muscular endurance. Click below to learn how to test the residents.

Testing for independent residents 

Health and Safety

As part of your obligations as a CB FIT instructor, you are required to read through and understand Cerebellums health and safety procedures.

As an instructor you will be given a login for a platform called Safety Monitor. Here you will be assigned with your village/s. You are required to read through the H&S manual which can be viewed anytime in the documents section. Any health and safety incidents, hazards or environmental concerns need to be reported and can be done so easily on the platform.

If you have any questions or concerns, reach out to Dan.

The health and safety manual can also be viewed in CB FIT hub dropbox ➡️ Health and safety

This is the main folder to download attendance sheets, REPs Prescreening forms, record attendance numbers and equipment inventory.

You will also be allocated your own separate folder specific to your village. Here you will have folders to place REPs prescreening forms, photos, videos, your contract and other miscellaneous items. 

You will be sent email links to be able to edit to each of these folders before you begin teaching.

Forms and attendance

All of these forms can be found and downloaded in CB FIT HUB ➡️ Attendance sheets and Prescreen forms

Attendance sign-in sheet and waiver. 

Every class must have an attendance sign-in sheet which the residents put their name down every time they attend. Alongside this sheet is a CB FIT guidelines Terms & Conditions form they can read over and agree to.

The attendance sheet states that by signing into the class, they agree to the Ts&Cs on the CB FIT guidelines info sheet 2021. This process is very similar to when parking in a car park building and there is a sign which usually states "By parking in this building you agree to the following conditions".

REPs Prescreen form

Every resident is required to fill out a REPs prescreening form in order to participate in CB FIT classes. Once filled out, you must scan and place them into your SS village folders. Suggested free scanning apps are Adobe scan and scannable. Many prefer to take this form home and have a read over it before bringing it back the following class. This is acceptable, as they need to agree to the basic Ts&Cs when signing in.
