This editorial is dedicated to the success of APEX, AFAA’s long standing fi tness industry conference held at multiple sites and dates, for improving the professional competency, knowledge and skills of fitness trainers and group exercise instructors. AFAA would like to offer sincere and hearty congratulations and gratitude to all those presenters who have taught, hosted, mentored and coached participants to new heights. APEX is a semi-annual conference that not only advances professional standing, but proves to be an enjoyable gathering for sharing ideas and personal rejuvenation. Be sure to participate in an APEX near you this coming year!
In many editorials, I write about the advantages of taking AFAA’s online learning workshops, especially the new LQA Education™ platform in which viewers can learn, move, and get real-time answers to their questions on a range of fitness and health topics. Many training firms, corporate training programs, schools and universities are adopting online learning platforms in order to reduce the rising costs of education. In doing so, there is a frenzied attempt to adapt a classroom experience to a digital world. AFAA has the longest and tried-and-true experience of providing online education, and has refined and perfected its functional operations so that you can have a lively, interactive experience. Adult learners need to hear and see lessons demonstrated in a variety of ways for maximum comprehension.
Now you can earn CEUs by participating in AFAA’s LQA Education™ Live Online Workshops. Just login with an Internet-enabled multimedia computer and start earning your CEUs live! Need your questions answered immediately during the workshop? Use our unique new patent-pending LQA System™ (Live Question and Answer System) to get your questions answered by experts in real-time. This text-based system runs continuously during select live workshops.
Can’t join us on the days when the subject matter experts are available live? AFAA also archives these workshops online at e-afaa.com. Although you will not have access to the LQA System™, you will get all the convenience of online learning.
Whether you want to attend an online workshop with live experts (real time) or choose to study at your own pace (archive), AFAA’s new two-pronged approach lets you decide what works best for you.
Surveys show 95 to 100% instructor satisfaction among those who attend AFAA’s LQA Online™ Workshops, indicating that they would attend another AFAA online workshop using this enhanced educational method and refer a friend.
