1 Answer | Asked by sandra stockley on Dec 14, 2014

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Dec 14, 2014

Again, I am not sure I understand exactly what is being asked. An instructor is not a child care provider, and vice versa. What is required in training, background checks, certification, and experience and skills are different in each case. A fitness instructor who works with children and youth t...
