Certified Exercise Experts for Aging Adults (CEEAA)

3-COURSE SERIES

New 2017 Locations and Dates Announced!

 

All PTs with the CEEAA® credential will demonstrate expert clinical decision-making skills in:

  1. Designing and applying an effective examination and exercise prescription; and
  2. Measuring the effectiveness and reflecting the current evidence of exercise for all aging adults.

The process to attain the credential of CEEAA® is to complete formal didactic education and to participate in supervised and mentored skills development, home-based reflection and critical thinking. Three courses of two days each will address evidence-based examination and different and increasingly complex aspects of exercise design and delivery. The three courses are designed to build on each other; however, Courses 1 and 2 may be taken out of sequence.

After each course there is an online exam to be completed within 3 months of the course. There is one practical that is done onsite either course 2 or 3. All tests/practicals get 2 attempts to achieve a 75% passing score.While all attendees will receive continuing education credit, the tests/practical exam must be completed successfully to achieve the certification designation.

Examination/Evaluation

There will be an online examination for Courses 1, 2, and 3. The skills test for the content of Course 1 will be performed on site during Course 2 or 3. If a participant does not achieve a passing grade on the skills test, they will be given the opportunity to retake the examination prior to the completion of Course 3. All assessments must be completed within six weeks of taking the related course. A participant must achieve minimum criteria in both the skills and didactic assessments to progress to the next level; however, a person can elect to take a course without being tested. After the successful completion of the 3 courses, 3 online examinations, and skills test, the participant will receive a certificate and specially designed pin to recognize the certification.
