Siapa yang dapat berpartisipasi dalam paket AFAA-GFI For ZIN™?
This AFAA-GFI For ZIN™ bundle is available for ZIN™ Members anywhere in the world in English and Spanish to help further their education. The AFAA Group Fitness Instructor credential is recognized in the US and offers CPD credits in the UK, but ZINs outside of these countries will have access to this bundle to get this certification, recognition, and education from one of the leading certifying organizations in the world. Please note that to complete the certification process, you must enroll and pass the exam*
Apakah ada prasyarat untuk mendaftar paket AFAA-GFI For ZIN™?
  • The only prerequisites to sign up to the AFAA-GFI For ZIN™ bundle are a Zumba® Instructor License and ZIN™ membership in good standing. Please note, however, that Emergency Cardiac Care (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Certification for Adults is required to present prior to sitting for the proctored Certified Group Fitness Instructor (CGFI) exam. CPR/AED is not required to enroll in the certification exam but is required to be able to take the exam. We encourage you to sign up for the AFAA-GFI For ZIN™ bundle and start making progress on the Group Fitness Instructor (GFI) certification course even if you don’t have your CPR/AED certification yet. Ultimately, you will still have to complete the online GFI course and sign up to the exam through AFAA. From there, you still have 180 days to complete the CPR/AED certification and take the exam so you can start making progress towards both simultaneously.
  • Berikut beberapa informasi tambahan tentang persyaratan Sertifikasi CPR/AED:
    • CPR/AED certification is NOT required to sign up for the AFAA-GFI for ZIN™ bundle but will be required prior to taking the exam (obtaining CPR/AED will be required only after completing the GFI course and registering for the exam).
    • Most organizations offer Adult CPR & AED training together as one offering. Here are some CPR/AED Certifications recommended by AFAA: American Heart Association, American Red Cross, American Safety and Health Institute.
    • AFAA recognizes that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is very limited availability of hands-on skills assessments for CPR/AED certifications. AFAA will be temporarily waiving the hands-on skills assessment requirement and accepting online-only CPR/AED courses. This waiver applies to exam candidates and professionals recertifying their credentials. This waiver will be in effect until the CDC and government recommendations for social distancing have been lifted in the United States. Once the social distancing orders have been lifted, there will be a 60-day window before the hands-on requirement will be reinstated. AFAA recommends that anyone who certified or recertified during the Waiver Period obtain the hands-on skills assessment once available to avoid any insurance or liability issues which could arise due to the lack of such training. Please note: The online course must still include Adult CPR/AED.

Once I upgrade, when is the AFAA Group Fitness Instructor (AFAA-GFI) course available to me? When do I start receiving the CEU courses and other benefits?
Once you have successfully opted in to the AFAA-GFI For ZIN™ bundle via your ZIN account on Zumba.com, you will have immediate access to the AFAA Group Fitness Instructor course for ZINs via your AFAA dashboard on ZIN™ Home. You will also start receiving the additional content to get credits towards recertification every other month on the 10th of these months: January, March, May, July, September, and November (even if you haven't finished your AFAA-GFI course or passed the test). However, CEU credits from completed quizzes only apply towards Recertification requirements to current accredited certifications. So, ZINs should not complete CEU Corners quizzes until they’ve completed their AFAA-GFI course, passed their exam, and completed full certification to ensure they receive the credits needed for recertification.
When will I receive the ongoing courses I receive by upgrading to this bundle?
Every 2 months on the 10th of the following months: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
How will I be charged for the upgrade cost of $10/month?
The fee for this bundle will be charged with your ZIN™ monthly payment.
Once I take the AFAA-GFI course, am I immediately certified?
Upon completing the AFAA-GFI course, you must enroll and pass the exam. Upon successful completion, you will be awarded a certificate that is valid for 2 years. You can access a digital copy of your certificate within the AFAA Customer Portal and an official certificate will be mailed (Domestic U.S. addresses only) to you within four to six weeks of passing the exam.
What languages will the AFAA-GFI course & exam and the ongoing bi-monthly content be available in?
  • The AFAA-GFI Course & Bi-monthly Courses are available in English & Spanish.
  • Certification Exam:
    • AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor (AFAA-CGFI) exam: This is a proctored exam and is only available in English.

Dapatkah Anda memberikan detail lebih lanjut tentang konten dua bulanan yang akan saya terima sebagai bagian dari paket ini?
Sebagai bagian dari paket AFAA-GFI For ZIN™, Anda akan menerima konten pendidikan yang dapat Anda selesaikan untuk menerima dan mencapai kredit (CEU) yang diperlukan untuk sertifikasi ulang. Biasanya, Anda perlu mencari dan membeli kursus ini secara terpisah. Sebagai bagian dari paket ini, konten akan dikirim ke Anda melalui dashboard yang dipersonalisasi dan dapat Anda akses di ZIN™ Home tanpa biaya tambahan. Kursus dua bulanan terdiri dari:
  • 5 CEU Corners per tahun (senilai $175): Ini adalah kursus ringan mencakup berbagai topik yang berkaitan dengan olahraga, kesehatan, nutrisi, perilaku, atau emosi yang menarik dan cocok untuk semua audiens. Kursus ini mirip dengan artikel pendidikan yang menyediakan sains yang berhubungan dengan aplikasi praktis. Setelah kuis berhasil diselesaikan, Anda akan menerima 2 CEU yang akan diperhitungkan dalam sertifikasi ulang Anda (15 CEU diperlukan untuk sertifikasi ulang setiap 2 tahun).
  • 1 additional online AFAA/NASM fitness or wellness course every year ($99-$299 in value): These courses cover topics associated with fitness and wellness but not directly related to group fitness or personal training job requirements. These are geared towards the professional and will cover topics in more depth than CEU Corners. Topics can vary from Mental Toughness to Women in Fitness. Once completed successfully, these courses also provide CEUs (i.e. credits) towards recertification. CEUs vary by Continuing Education Course provided with at least 10 CEUs per annual course.
Berapa lama kursus sertifikasi AFAA-GFI berlangsung?
Menyelesaikan kursus AFAA-GFI ZIN™ akan memakan waktu sekitar 25% lebih sedikit jika dibandingkan kursus GFI reguler yang ditawarkan oleh AFAA (20-25 jam untuk kursus reguler dan sekitar 15 jam untuk kursus AFAA-GFI ZIN™). Alasan kursus yang ditawarkan kepada ZIN lebih pendek adalah karena kami bekerja sama dengan AFAA untuk memetakan kompetensi dan kemampuan yang dipelajari dalam pelatihan Zumba Basic 1. AFAA mengakui kemampuan yang dipelajari sebagai "pengenalan pembelajaran sebelumnya" dan telah menghapus beberapa konten untuk mencerminkan hal ini sehingga menghasilkan kursus yang lebih singkat.
What is a CEU? How many are required to recertify?
The acronym "CEU" stands for Continuing Education Unit. Continuing education programs are intended to promote continued competence, development of knowledge and skills, and enhancement of professional skills and judgment beyond the levels required for entry-level practice.

Currently, a minimum of 15 CEUs is required for recertification every 2 years. This is equivalent to 15 contact hours (1 contact hour is equivalent to 1 CEU). Two contact hours (2 CEUs) must be from an AFAA or NASM course.

For additional details, please reference the AFAA recertification guidelines here: https://www.afaa.com/recertify
