Comprehensive Program Design Workshop. February 8 2014

program design

After personally taking several courses at Inshape Training  in Vancouver which claims to specialize in Personal Training Certification and Group Fitness Certification.

They claim that their programs not only meet the standard for BCRPA registration, but also meet the higher standard of CFES also know as Canadian Fitness Education Services essential for those working abroad. We provide up-to-date knowledge and practical skills, for those pursuing a career in fitness. However I am not sure if the public is aware but Inshape Training uses the “Canadian Fitness Education Services” textbooks and manuals. However I noticed errors in their book.  I did inform Inshape Training on March 1st 2013 and they did admit the errors.  For the price they charge the textbook could be better.

However what was shocking was when we noticed that Canadian Fitness Education Services plagiarized some content in their Personal Training book which is absolutely unacceptable.

Wikipedia states that Plagiarism is

1)  is the “wrongful appropriation” and “stealing and publication” of another author‘s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions” and the representation of them as one’s own original work.

2) Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion.

3) Plagiarism is a serious ethical offense

4) and cases of plagiarism can constitute copyright infringement.

CFES plagiarized or forged material in their Personal Training book.

CFES plagiarized in their Personal Training manual on Chapter 6 page 7 regarding “perfect posture”

Please see the picture. Then you will notice that it came from here

CFES does not give credit to Vern Gambetta who worked so hard and deserves credit.

I myself had a bad experience with CFES and now find out that my suspicions were correct. I am sure if BCRPA and UBC recreation who have a business relationship with them find out then they will sever ties with CFES or at least demand an explanation.

We highly recommend that you contact
