The Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, a fitness and TeleFitness® education provider, has recently gained accreditation from the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The DETC Accrediting Commission has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as an accreditation agency since 1959. “On behalf of AFAA, I would like to thank the participants and staff for all their hard work, patience and trust they have placed in us throughout this pursuit of DETC accreditation,” said AFAA president, Linda Pfeffer, in a press release. “This marks a historic day for us, and signals the beginning of a new era of leadership and cutting-edge innovation in distance learning for our organization.”
