• SFA's innovative "Brain Fitness for Older Adults" educational program is now available at the Learning Center. This online edition of the course includes all of the instructional information and valuable resources contained in the "hard copy" version of the program. And, it's currently available at a special introductory price.

    • For those who are not sure if online learning is right for them, we have included "Dowel Exercise," a brief free sample course, to help you decide. Although "Dowel Exercise" is short and simple, it follows the same overall format as all of our online courses. So, if you can successfully complete "Dowel Exercise," you can complete any of our online courses. The enrollment key is DOWEL (all caps).

    • Online testing is available for all of our certificate of completion programs including Senior Fitness Instructor Parts 1 & 2, Senior Personal Trainer Parts 1 & 2, and Long Term Care Fitness Leader Parts 1 & 2 and Brain Fitness for Older Adults.
