While this is an online course you will have the ability to tailor how you apply what you learn to the specific areas where you teach/train. No generic, cookie cutter course here my friends!
Individual Attention — We use a combination of an online platform with individual video conferencing so there is truly a personal experience.
Industry Leading Content — We use the ACE Senior Fitness Manual in this course (you will need to purchase this directly from ACE – don’t worry we will give you the link – $59.99 USD). We went this route instead of writing our own manual as we wanted to ensure that the manual was always up to date with the latest research and best practices. Who better to do that than an international organization with an entire academic team behind them?
The other amazing part? You can choose to purchase an old school paper manual or an e-book. We do everything we can to provide options for all learning styles.
