CEC Allocation Process

We have recently revamped our CEC Allocation process to better allow our members to assess CEC possibilities offered in Manitoba. If there conferences, workshops or seminars that you attend that follow the same content as the suggested topics below there will be an opportunity to gain CEC’s for those.

We will still need applications to be sent in with the agenda and the credentials of the sessions that you attend.

CEC’s will be assessed according to the following criteria:

Theory Seminars

These seminars are designed to increase the understanding of facts, concepts, research and theories. The teaching format is one or a combination of lecture, group work, reading or other learning strategies intended for increasing knowledge. Movement may be a part of the learning process but only to illustrate, reinforce or analyze the new knowledge.

Sample seminar topics include but are not limited to:

Theory Seminars

Anatomy, Exercise Analysis, Health, Safety tips, Injury Prevention, New Research, Nutrition, Physiology of Exercise, or Healthy Body Weight

Practical Sessions

Special Populations (New Comers, Older adult; Seniors, Youth, People with Physical Disabilities), Testing Techniques, Choreography, Use of Equipment/ Apparatus (ex. Strength Training Equipment, Skin Fold Calipers) Specialty Classes(ex. Step, Tabata, Etc)

1 CEC is also available for attending another MFC instructors class (max of 3 available per renewal)

Leadership Seminars

Motivation, Coaching, Climate setting, Customer Service, Group Dynamics, Behaviour change, Communication, Psychology, Adult Education, Organizational Skill Building, Coaching, Customer Service, Counselling, Presentation Skills, Management Training, Leadership Theories, Goal Setting, or Program Planning.
