Is a certification in rowing really necessary? I only say this because it seems like we have a certification for every piece of equipment. Physical Therapists don’t need to have a Nu-step certification, or a Rolling Walker certification. There are many pieces of equipment that we use as trainers. A basic understanding of biomechanics is more important than a certification based on any piece of equipment.
If you are interested in learning how to learn the technical side of the equipment, I suggest contacting your equipment supplier. On the other hand, if you want to learn how to row properly, perhaps you should pay a rowing coach for his/her time. Perhaps I am misunderstanding why you are search for this type of a certification. If your reason is purely to add another certification to your resume, or for marketing purposes, you might look into other opportunities.
My company, UCanRow2, is lead provider of group exercise certification on the Concept2 Indoor Rower and we offer trainings around the country (and some in Canada). We have a training coming up in Atlanta on April 27 if that’s of interest. More info here: http://ucanrow2com/instructors. Hope you can join us!
PS: Thanks for the reminder that we need to get our cert calendar posteCd here! 🙂
