Partnering with organizations like Club Industry and THRSA, a regional branch of IHRSA, SCW also attracts Managers, Directors and Owners of clubs and facilities nationwide to our business and management tracks.
MANIA® Conventions supply you with up to 21 Continuing Education Credits during the three-day convention and pre-convention certifications. SCW, AFAA, ACE, ACSM, AEA and others accept MANIA® CECs. SCW is committed to offering the maximum number of Continuing Education Credits possible and therefore utilizes only certified presenters or presenters with fitness-related graduate and undergraduate degrees. Please check with your certifying body to determine the exact number of CECs required for credential maintenance. All courses are subject to CEC approval by the corresponding education body.
