Occupational Testing
Recreation Services at the University of Manitoba has been providing assessments and testing for agencies over the last 30 years. Our facilities, equipment, staff, experience and reasonable rates combine to produce an exceptional service. We are accredited with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) as an accredited fitness centre and a high performance athlete testing laboratory. This is an important distinction as it indicates that the centre has gone through a vigorous evaluation and that it meets national standards for exercise testing and prescription. It ensures the quality and reliability of the testing. We are staffed by CSEP-certified fitness consultants who facilitate all testing.

We would be happy to work with your employer to ensure that staff are physically able to meet the demands of their position prior to employment or as an assessment to monitor their current abilities.
