I’ve been teaching since the late ’80s and am learning much, being reminded of things
I’ve heard before, and clarifying information I thought I knew. But, what I am really
loving is that I feel like I am a much more powerful, life-enhancing instructor.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time is involved?

You’ll want to commit to one hour a week to keep pace and be involved.

What if I get busy and miss a week?

Don’t worry. We’re all busy! All of your online workshops are accessible for three years.

Do I have to be tech savvy?

Our online learning platform is easy to use. We recommend a computer for online workshops, but you can also log in on a tablet/mobile device. If you have trouble, we’re just an email away.

Do I receive continuing education credits (CECs)?

All online workshops are approved for AEA, Arthritis Foundation, ACE and ATRI continuing education credits. CECs are earned the date you complete each individual workshop.

Are there tests?

Because the workshops award CECs, there are quizzes. But don’t worry! If you don’t pass after the second try, we will send you a personal email to help you understand questions you missed. Most of the time, you won’t need the extra help, but we’ve got your back if you do.

Will I receive a certificate?

After satisfactorily completing all workshops and submitting your graduation review, you’ll receive your Wavemakers® certificate. This certificate represents the hours and dedication poured into your study of water exercise and the valuable skills you’ve developed.

I’ve never taught water exercise. Will I be lost?

Professionals in many facets of aquatics including fitness instructors, physical therapists, lifeguards, personal trainers and swim coaches benefit from Wavemakers. You don’t need years of experience or an exercise science degree. We’re here to answer your questions and guide your journey in an easy to use way. Wavemakers® ACTIVATE is the best place to start.

I’ve been teaching water exercise for years. Will I learn something new?

Even experienced instructors at the top of their game benefit from Wavemakers®. Some material will be a review. Learning HOW to focus on what works and develop your coaching skills is what will raise your credibility and confidence as a powerful, life-enhancing water exercise coach.

Can I start anytime?

Wavemakers® ACTIVATE opens in spring and Wavemakers® ACADEMY in the fall. Get on the list and receive a personal invitation to join.

I only teach specific workout formats. Is Wavemakers® for me?

We teach concepts that can be used to enhance the teaching and practice of any freestyle or pre-choreographed workout format in shallow, deep and transitional depths.

Wavemakers is the place where professionals, participants and facilities are connected to knowledge, resources and each other.

Together, let’s make some waves.
