What are Instructor Specialty Certifications?
Specialty Certifications are now the trend in the fitness industry.  Traditional certifications such as ACE and AFAA Group Exercise and Personal Trainer certifications offer a broad range of fitness and health education including kinesiology, physiology, anatomy in addition to training in building effective fitness classes of all kinds and/or individual programs for Personal Training clients.
Instructor Specialty Certifications focus on specific fitness formats such as TABATA, water/aqua, Spinning/cycling, Pilates, Yoga, Boot Camp and Zumba to name a few.  Specialty Certifications typically require or encourage their certified professionals to have a traditional certification, or to pursue one, for the expertise they offer in knowledge of human anatomy and safety of movement and fitness endeavors.
Specialty Certifications tend to focus their training on their specific fitness format.


What do you mean by "credits"?
Continuing Education Credits or Continuing Education Units which are required for recertification of fitness professionals.  fitness.edu Symposiums provide "Credits" for our events.   If your certification organization is not listed, you can petition for credit approval with your organization for a nominal fee.


My certification organization is not listed - can I still get my credits?
Yes!  ACE and AFAA credits especially, are typically accepted by all certification organizations through petition for a nominal fee.  Generally, the petition fee is for individual courses, but events usually only require one fee.
 
 

Why do I sometimes only receive one certificate of completion for all of the classes I attended?
So that our attendees have all the information they need for recertification in one place.  In some cases,  there will be just one event Course # for the entire Symposium.  This form will have all the information you will need when you recertify, whether there is one course number or several.  
(In the event that there is a Friday night offering, attendees will receive a separate certificate of completion for the Friday night courses.)
