Educational Courses to Accompany the New Textbook

Course #1: Faculty Training Course: Two NEW Options for 2022

This faculty training course was first offered in summer 2021 with 29 faculty members enrolled.  A summary of the course evaluations, submitted by faculty members who completed the course, is available at: Summary - 2021 Course Evaluations. Based on the course evaluations, exciting changes have been made for summer 2022 -- faculty members can choose from two options as described below. 

Course #2: CEC/CEU Course – Minimizing Legal Liability and Maximizing Fitness Safety

This self-study course is designed for fitness managers, exercise professionals, and students. Upon successful completion of the course, 22 ACSM CECs or 2.0 NSCA CEUs are awarded. Individuals can register anytime for the "self-study" course and complete it at their own pace.

NEW for the CEC/CEU Course in 2022 -- Two Options: 

1. 20% Discount off the Self-Study Course -- Discount January through April 30, 2022, only. 

2. Self-Study plus 6-week live Zoom classes beginning in March as described below (also a 20% discount)

COURSE #1 – Faculty Training Courses for 2022: Professors Can Choose the Option Best for Them

Option 1: This "self-study" course is primarily designed for faculty members who want to include legal/risk management content in an existing course. Individuals can register and complete this course anytime. 

Option 2: This "self-study" course also includes a 10-week live Zoom class. It is primarily designed for faculty members who want to offer an entire course covering legal/risk management topics and possibly adopt the textbook for the course. The first Zoom Class will be scheduled the week of May 23, 2022. NEW LOWER PRICE = $199 -- must be registered and paid by April 30th. NOTE: When completing the registration form, still select the 10-week option. The invoice sent will be for $199 -- includes the textbook and the ancillaries. If you already have a copy of the textbook, $89 will be deducted making the course fee $110.  

Professors enrolled in both courses will receive the textbook and numerous ancillaries to help them learn/apply the content presented in the textbook and to use with their students in classes as well as the option to earn ACSM CECs or NSCA CEUs.
