Do you/your facility pay for staff certifications and/or continuing education?
I'm considering expanding what our company provides to Certified Personal Trainers. Currently, we require staff to pay for their own certifications and continuing education. We do offer continuing education on site, for no cost to them. I was wondering what other policies are out there. If you/your facility pay for certifications, what % is covered? Additionally, what are some of the requirements from staff after having this paid for (ex. must stay for 6 months, work x amount of hours, etc).
there club where I teach does not offer any contributions towards certifications, renewals and continued education. However, they make an effort for continued education providers to come on site. That is often discounted for the staff but only because of the organization that provides the CeCs.
Many years ago (last millennium) there was an annual subsidy of $150.
