The training was held in part-time form with the use of distance learning technologies. The duration of the course was 72 hours.

The PC program consisted of three sections: basic module, special module and practical classes.

Classes of the basic module included online lectures on the history, organization, normative-legal regulation of Paralympic sport, as well as on the peculiarities of classification, anti-doping and scientific and methodological support of Paralympic athletes.

Practical training under the PC Program was held in the period from September 19 to 22, 2023 in Yekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk region) on the basis of MBOU DO SSH "Victoria" (14 Vladimir Vysotsky St., Yekaterinburg, Sverdlovsk region) within the framework of the Russian Cup in powerlifting for persons with disabilities in 2023.

- Training time in Paralympic powerlifting

- Competition process in Paralympic powerlifting

At the end of the training, the students who successfully mastered the program and passed the final certification were issued Certificates of Professional Development.
