Live Certification Course

The WATERinMOTION® Live Certification serves as an important first step into teaching water exercise. Drawing on over 100 years of combined experience in the aquatic fitness industry, this certification serves as an important first step into the field of teaching water exercise.

A combination of home study and live training, the home study videos and theoretical exams prepare you for the full day practical course in the convenience and privacy of your home. Practical teaching skills utilizing pre-choreographed routines that are memorized serve to enhance your class sequencing, warm-up, progressions, musical phrasing, proper cueing techniques, choreography development and all the skills required to teach your best class, every class. A complimentary take home practical assessment is included, and this course also provides you with all that you need to succeed as an aquatic fitness professional. Additionally, a downloadable one hour choreography video, downloadable one hour music CD, complete educational manual, video lecture, choreography booklet, flash cards and notes are included in this comprehensive course.
