AFAA is launching a new Biggest Loser certification website tied to the tv show in January. For the last year AFAA members have been able to study the certification and 100 members were able to take part in the website test. Has anyone had any experience with the certification or website? What has your experience been?
Completed the training some time ago. Then recieved email from afaa with a check list. Ond item on check list concerned me, the $9.95 monthly technology fee. I called the office months ago to see if the site was up and running. It wad NOT. Recieved an email today (June27,2012) again asking me to complete items on checklist, so I called afaa office again and asked same question. The person said ”I think it is up and operating”. Very costly training, I cannot assess the professional value. If you pay the monthly fee will that insure clients? What is the marketing plan to inform potential clients? Can you market the brand ”Biggest Loser” in person (and be exempt) from paying the monthly tech fee?
Probably a good concept to help the obese, BUT a poor infrastructure to deliver on program goals
