How Does Testing for Free CECs Work?

It’s simple: Read each article in the continuing education packet and then take the corresponding Self Test to demonstrate what you’ve learned. Read the personal training soft-skill situation and then answer a set of questions about it in a Fitness Flop quiz. Take each test or quiz as many times as you need for as long as you need to get your credit.
