Dr. Mark Ryan of the North Valley Military Institute has agreed to teach a Physical Education CSET preparation class for interested JROTC Instructors and Basic Military Drill instructors. The methodology of the preparation course is to take one of the three Physical Education CSET sub-tests at a time and to prepare for that test during the preparation class.
The Classes will be held at Manual Arts and Van Nuys high schools on the dates and times indicated below. Manual Arts High is located at 4131 South Vermont Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90037 and Van Nuys High School: Address is 6535 Cedros Ave, Van Nuys CA. 91411.
The preparation classes are provided at no cost to the JROTC instructors. However lunch will be at the expense of each instructor, if there is enough interest we could provide a group lunch at a cost from a vendor such as Subway. The LAUSD JROTC HQs will provide refreshments in the form of water and Coffee in the AM.
Please send an email with the name/s of JROTC instructors that plans to attend. Be advised we are sending notification to all JROTC programs in and around Los Angeles CA. Also Dr. Ryan will be inviting California Cadet Corps instructors from the middle schools. We expect as many as 100 attendees. Instructor interested in attending the training must contact me via email or at 213-745-1915 and reserve a spot and indicate their intentions for lunch. On their own or the group option.

Regarding books: The following are recommended:
ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT TO GET THIS ONE:
Physical Education Activity Handbook by Neil Schmottlach and Jerre McManama. There are a variety of editions out there. I have the 12th, which is a bit old, but fine. The ISBN for that 12th edition is 978-0-321-59639-0
Another good, but optional text
Dynamic Physical Education for Secondary School Students by Paul Darst and Robert Pangrazi. I have the 4th edition, which is also older. The ISBN for that edition is 0-205-34092-X
If you obtain these books, please bring to training.
