Recreation officer is a billet of the Medical Division aboard United Federation of Planets Starfleet ships and stations. (TOS novel: The Wounded Sky, TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally)

In 2264, the unnamed recreation officer knew all of the Enterprise's officers' athletic skills and recommended that Captain Kirk teach a judo class. (TOS novel: Enterprise: The First Adventure)

The billet was called recreation director in this novel.

As exemplified by the duties taken on by Lieutenant Harb Tanzer on Enterprise in the 2270s, the billet included: maintaining the morale and mental health of the officers and crew aboard; servicing as chaplain or counselor in the absence of personnel to fill those billets; and supervising any and all recreational facilities.

The training for such a billet have not been outlined any pro or fan fiction, though presumably there is a specific curriculum at Starfleet Medical Academy.

Lieutenant Hasslein was the recreation officer on Shadowstar Station in the 2290s. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: "Pomp and Circumstantial Evidence")
