Over CEUs, really? Who breaks butterflies on a wheel? If you're not teaching for money or at an affliliate. then who cares if you're "certified" or not?

Methinks you'll have a whole new set of worries in 5 years, let it go.
My understanding is that you have to be certified for even a nonprofit affialate.

As founder of a military non-profit affliate, it will be a challenge to continue to shell out $1k for a recert, when i'm not making any money from sailors / soldiers.
Possibly HQ can take this into account and go beyond the $200 discount for active duty military.
If getting this covered under tuition assistance actually gets some teeth...that would be movement in the right direction.

Yeah, but you're not a non-profit affiliate, you're a guy helping his buddies get fit using CF methodology, you could do that by reading the journal, but you're motivated, you took the cert.

I'm saying if there's no financial benefit to you being certified why worry about it, you have the knowledge and Uncle Sugar doesn't really recognise the CF certs anyway.

Thank you for your service.

That is correct. At least that is what they have said at the certs thus far this year. Not sure about the affiliation fees.
