You can earn up to 20 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. Our Recorded sessions also provide 20+ CECs.

CEC/CEU forms will be provided electronically after the event. 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. Recorded sessions also offer CECs. Please make sure to retain an electronic copy for your records, since there is a $35.00 replacement fee for any misplaced forms.

Every registered attendee will receive a confirmation email. The convention receipt can be found in the body of the confirmation email.

For only $1 per day, you gain access to all the sessions from Rooms A, B, C, D, G, and H, ensuring you don’t miss a single moment of the action-packed weekend.

Thursday is a Pre-Convention day because it occurs 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, contributing to a valuable educational experience.

Your SCW certification is valid for two years. Please note the following steps that are required to renew your certification:

  • Please visit
  • Submit 20 hours of continuing education credits from courses you attend after your certification’s renewal date
  • You can obtain CECs from a SCW Approved Provider. Please visit to view the list of approved providers. If you have obtained more than 20 credit hours, extra hours do not carry over into the next period
  • SCW recognizes other courses taken through all accredited colleges and universities. Academic courses relating to the field of fitness such as leadership, teaching skills, fitness management, nutrition, research, anatomy, physiology, exercise programming, and others can be applied towards your SCW Certification renewal.
  • When submitting your renewal application include your CEC information and the renewal fee of $55 per certification
  • A $20 late fee will be assessed if you choose to renew your certification after the expiration date
  • If you do not renew within six months of your certification’s expiration date, you can apply for an extension at a cost of $75 . If you don’t apply for an extension you will forfeit your certification and will have to retake the course in order to re-certify. You will be able to do this by completing an online certification or by attending a live training at one of our MANIA® events.
  • Due to state and facility CPR requirements, SCW no longer requires a copy of your CPR card.
