In order to become AFAA Group Exercise Certified you will need to take a full-day workshop. The workshop includes a review of AFAA exercise standards, the practical application of group exercise, and a question and answer period to assist you with passing the exam.
The workshop has some prerequisites, such as a bit of self-study before the program, some group exercise teaching experience, and being CPR/AED certified before your AFAA Group Exercise certification can be issued.
The one-day workshop costs $299 and includes the study guide, certification review, certification exams (both written and practical), and an AFA Certified Instructor certificate and I.D. card upon the successful completion of both exams. You can register for an AFAA Group Exercise Certification workshop by visiting the AFAA website.
