About Hybrid CEEAA

A flexible, interactive, and cost-effective format

The process to attain the credential of CEEAA® in the hybrid format is to complete five asynchronous, interactive modes, two facilitated synchronous webinars (optional), and one in-person capstone weekend that will address evidence-based examination and different aspects of exercise design and delivery. The capstone weekend will include one practical exam and lab work. 

Following the in-person capstone weekend, participants will complete one online cumulative exam. Participants will receive two attempts to achieve a 75% passing score for the exam and the practical. While all attendees will receive continuing education credit, the tests/practical exam must be completed successfully within 3 months to achieve the certification designation. Participants will be required to complete the series two years from registration. 

The capstone weekend for this course will take place September 13-15, 2024. Location for this capstone weekend is to be determined.
