 This course is free if you are taking the Exam
 & registered as a Full Conference Delegate.

 A hands-on workshop format led by AEA and designed to rein-
 force the Online Prep Course. This course does not cover all

 difficult to master through reading or distance learning.
 Theory, classroom movement and pool participation help you
 to apply your knowledge to enhance your teaching! Advanced
 Course preparation is recommended. The AFP daylong course
 outline will detail what is covered in the AFP Course and can be
 downloaded when you complete your registration or directly
 from the AEA Website Certification Menu.
