CECs/CEUs are continuing education credits or units utilized to keep certifications current. SCW is a CEC/CEU provider for SCW, ACE, AFAA, NASM, ACSM, AEA and more. If there is a certifying body that is not present on the list above, attendees can petition the CEC form with these certifying bodies directly (attendee may incur additional fees).
The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: SCW, ACE, NASM, ACSM, AFAA, and AEA. If your certification agency is not listed, you will have to petition the CECs with your certifying body. We are happy to assist with this process. Please email certs@scwfit.com should you require assistance.
You can earn up to 24 CECs/CEUs by attending the 3-Day convention. If you choose to attend a pre-convention certification or workshop, you can earn even more CECs/CEUs.
Generally, each certifying body will award one CEC/CEU per hour during each workshop. Each class is 1.5 hours and therefore, you will receive 1.5 units. Some certifying bodies give more or less than the 1.5 units, depending on factors such as lecture vs. workout and land vs. aqua.
CEC/CEU forms will be provided electronically after the event. Upon the close of MANIA®, you will be asked to complete an event survey. After you complete the survey, you will be taken to a page to download the CEC/CEU Form for MANIA®. The form will be signed and you will have to tally the totals for your CECs/CEUs on the third page of the form. The CECs/CEUs expire after two years from the date of the conference. Please make sure to retain an electronic copy for your records, since there is a $35.00 replacement fee for any misplaced forms.
Upon completion of a pre-convention certification or workshop, you will receive a CEC/CEU form. CEC/CEU amounts are dependent on the pre-convention certification or workshop that you enroll in during MANIA®.
Wednesday and Thursday are the Pre-Convention days because they occur before the 3-day MANIA® weekend event, which begins on Friday and runs through Sunday. This allows SCW to offer full and half-day certifications where the instructors can give thorough one-on-one time with the attendees, which contributes to a valuable educational experience.
MANIA® Attendees receive a discounted rate for most pre-con and post-con certifications. Those who attend a certification and not the MANIA® conference will pay the Non-Attendee rate for that certification.
