What is Virtual Training?
Virtual and live sessions are an excellent option to learn and review new ideas and techniques in the comfort and safety of your home. Should you need to renew your Certification(s) you can utilize either land or water CEC hours or add another level of Certification for your re-qualifying hours. This can be the way to do it.
WaterART is adjusting to the new normal by introducing online virtual and live training events via the Vimeo video hosting program. We know how much everyone enjoys the collaboration and energy of onsite training; however, many facilities are not opening up their facilities for onsite training OR may have limited time for training. So, virtual training is the solution! Everyone may attend and you have no additional travel or time expense.
These live events will be facilitated by a variety of Master Trainer(s) and you do not need a pool or gym to participate. Everyone is welcome and you simply link to the live streaming on the day of the event. (We email you a link on the day of the event). You will need internet access and you may simply view the session on smart device or computer.
For those of you in a rural area or without consistent internet, we will record a video of the session so that you may also review after the session (when you have access to internet or time to view each section of the presentation in a showcase). This gives you both options of the event.
Note that only the Master Trainer (presenter)is on the video screen for the presentation (with their power point or live full body presentation and/or snippets of video). Candidates are invited by link but their face/body is not shown on the screen (not like Zoom). WaterART is utilizing Vimeo to showcase the best of both live and recorded video training in ad free way. Candidates do not need to log into the Vimeo system or give any of your personal information – you register directly with WaterART Fitness International.
Should you miss the presentation, you may simply order through our home study option on the www.waterart.org website. With the live streaming option you do not have to complete quizzes for CECs however, if you purchase the home study or recorded version – you will have to complete those requirements via online quiz program.
Throughout the event you may email or video chat to interact with the Master Trainer facilitating the event . All questions will be answered at the end of the session or prior to a lunch break as not to be disruptive during the presentations.
Certified and Enthusiast members receive a discounted rate on this training as well as the many benefits of being a WaterART member. Please note if you are working on the program being presented (via onsite or home study education) – you are invited to partake free of charge – just email us. Our goal is always to help professionals through their exam process.
Please note that all sessions may be done either for renewal hours (CECs) or to achieve another level of full Certification.
If you are completing the same full certification program via home study– you are invited to join into the virtual event free of charge (note you should email us so that you register for this option so that you will be on the specific virtual event list).
All certification candidates whether completing home study, virtual or onsite will receive up to six months after the event to complete the exam process as well as an automatic renewal of your existing qualifications for two years from the current expiration date.
