hands-down favorites are the IDEA conventions. I love to expose myself to many different ideas and take off from there if I feel it is a good fit (that’s where I was first introduced to MELT). I remember more than one conference where I felt that just one class alone was worth the entire expense.
This year, I also added a few NASM specialty certifications which are really just continuing education with a title at the end. I like those as well because they go into great depth and provide wonderful material.
IDEA conventions are top of the line- I’m also a fan of the Perform Better functional training summit as it is a mix of trainers, coaches and therapists. http://www.performbetter.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SeminarsDisplay?c…
It’s nice to network and learn with similar but different professionals and to stay current pear reviewed information.
Hi if we’re talking ‘classes’ which your question does ask about, then I’d say any class that is interactive/hands-on. I spend a great deal of my time already online conducting research in pursuit of my writing/publication, so having the opportunity to actually do hands-on continuing education.
