Are there places to change and/or shower between classes?

Unfortunately, other than your hotel room, there are no shower facilities available to attendees in the hotel. Restroom facilities throughout the venue can be used for changing clothes, if needed.

Session handouts will not be available at the event.Session handouts can be found here. Please print any handouts you need prior to the event and bring them with you. If you decided to change a session on-site, session handouts can be found in the event app.

How do I get CECs for the sessions I attend?

Your proof of attendance and CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access anytime after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation. Workouts do not qualify for CECs. They are designed to be just that, a workout. No CEC-able education is associated with them.

Which certification agencies offer CECs for this event?

The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: ACE, ACSM, AFAA, BOC, NASM, NFPT, NSCA, W.I.T.S., Cooper Institute, NETA, NESTA, and NFPT. If your certification agency is not listed, simply check with the agency to see what credits it allows.

How many CECs can I earn at the event?

You can earn up to 24 CEC hours by attending the full event and even more if you attend the preconference sessions. That’s enough credits for your certification renewal! (Please check with your specific certification agency for their renewal criteria).

What do I do if zero credits are assigned to my scheduled session?

CECs are assigned by the certification agency, not IDEA. Certification agencies base credits on the education provided and presenter qualifications. If you would like to attend a different session that is offering CEC credit, simply make the change online to your schedule prior to attending the event, or to make changes to your schedule on-site, visit Attendee Registration.

How many CECs are offered for each session?

Generally, you’ll receive one CEC per contact hour for workshops and lectures. If you attend a 2-hour workshop, you’ll receive up to 2 credit hours. We are in the process of getting approvals from each of the agencies above and will post the credits in session selection as soon as they are available. That way you’ll know exactly how many credits the session you are interested in attending is approved for by your certification agency. Check out how many CECs were offered at last year’s event here

Do I get CECs for completing the preconference and postconference sessions?

Yes, at the end of the preconference or postconference session you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion that will include the number of CECs for attending. Make a copy for your records and send a copy to your certification agency.

What is your policy on service animals?

If you require an Emotion Support Animal (ESA) please contact IDEA prior to arriving to the event. IDEA will require current documentation (not more than one year old) on letterhead from a licensed mental health professional stating (1) the attendee has a mental health-related disability listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV); (2) having the animal accompany the attendee is necessary to the attendee’s mental health or treatment; (3) the individual providing the assessment of the attendee is a licensed mental health professional and the attendee is under his/her professional care; and (4) the date and type of the mental health professional’s license and the state or other jurisdiction in which it was issued. This documentation may be required as a condition of permitting ESA’s to accompany attendees. Under the Americans With Disabilities Act, ESA’s are not given the same rights and exemptions as Service Animals and approval of ESA’s in public areas and businesses are at the discretion of those entities. If prior approval is not given by IDEA, attendees will be asked to remove the ESA from the event.
