Aquatic and Fitness Industry – Professional Development Series

In uncertain and challenging times, key aquatic and fitness industry organisations have come together and taken the decision to collaborate and step up the effort to support engagement and professional development during the COVID-19 state of emergency. The outcome of the collaboration is the decision to offer free professional development opportunities to anybody associated with the aquatic and fitness industry four times each week between April and July. The professional development will include a range of presentations, seminars and panel events delivered by industry leaders and external experts from across the Country.

These sessions will be delivered directly into the homes of industry personnel through a simple Microsoft teams link. Four streams have been developed to guide the delivery / inform attendance and are hoped to encourage uptake by a broad scope of industry personnel stuck at home as a result of COVID-19.  The intent of the project is to not just offer professional development opportunities, but more importantly the ability for industry personnel to connect and engage during this time of increased isolation, frustration and uncertainty.

To join the session, simply visit this web-page and click the ‘LINK’ at the time and date of the session and follow the prompts. Alternatively so you don’t forget cut and paste the link into your outlook calendar.
