I think they require enough but wish they required certain kinds. Only reading magazines is not as beneficial as attending a conference or course. I spend good money every year on con ed for Pilates, Physical Therapy and CSCS. There is always something more to learn. Sometimes more beneficial than some marketing dollars I have lost.
I’m so thankful for continuing ed too, and I really enjoy it. But the expense really drives me crazy! Actually, though, the price of the upcoming IDEA conference seems really reasonable, and I REALLY hope to go to that–the workshops all are SO appealing. If I can just find affordable air and hotel!!
My was mother was a teacher who spoke 2 languages, earned had 2 BS degrees, 2 MA degrees, 7 teaching credentials and was working on her PhD before her work-related injury. She taught be that more opportunities will open if you keep learning. She was right.
Any time I listen to my Kinesiology professors, I think I have a long way to go in my educational background.
I love learning. The more I learn then the more I can give my clients.
I spend as much as possible.
