FAQs: SUCCEED! the FBA Virtual Conference & Expo
What is SUCCEED! the FBA Virtual Conference & Expo all about?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our major convention and Expo called SUCCEED! went online and never looked back! The online event boasts education from the best educators inside and outside of the fitness industry to bring you the best opportunity to grow in any capacity! This is a great opportunity for the entire fitness industry to enjoy!
Who should attend?
We encourage and welcome EVERYONE in the fitness industry! Trainer, coach, instructor, nutritionist, dietitian, fitness business, manager, and/or independent contractor.
For those fitness businesses, we welcome any size, discipline, or tenure in business including fitness lovers with an entrepreneurial spirit, who have or who plan to parlay their passion for health and wellness doing what they love. Industry leaders and influencers who want to connect with others and hold meaningful dialog for the future of the industry.
Is SUCCEED! really free for 2-days?
Yes! We welcome anyone to come in and enjoy the first two days of the conference completely free as a courtesy of the FBA community (SUCCEED!'s parent company).
What else should I know?
While access to the education is free for the first two days, we do provide an exciting opportunity (for a very nominal fee) to upgrade and gain access to the entire conference. Upgrade options provide a ton of perks including the ability to watch every single session on your own time, FBA Certification, on-going education after the event and so much more.
Additionally, for those who upgrade, you can also add-on CEC/CEUs from all major certifying organizations!
How do the sessions work exactly?
All sessions will start PROMPTLY at their scheduled time. You may jump around to other sessions scheduled at the same time as well. If you've upgraded, you can sit back and relax because even if you're late to a session or miss one, you may go back and watch any session at any time!
All breakout sessions are conducted semi-live. This means the session is pre-recorded yet the speaker is in the virtual room during the session playback answering questions in real-time. Many additional sessions throughout the conference are conducted LIVE!
My video quality of the sessions is choppy and/or pixelated...why?
The quality of the session playback is entirely tied to your internet connection. Please ensure you are connected via a high-speed connection without any other applications running in the background to ensure the highest quality sound and video. We also highly recommend you restart your computer prior to attending the conference.
What about the Q&A during and after each session, how does that work?
Every session has its own virtual room where the session will start playing promptly at its scheduled time. During the session, you can use the discussion/chat feature to ask questions at any time.
Please keep in mind, due to the volume of attendees (several thousand) it’s possible your question may not get answered.
How do I engage with other attendees during the weekend?
It’s easy! There will be a large button to access the virtual forum where on-going discussion will be happening to ask questions about specific sessions and get real-time feedback as well!
CEC/CEUs + FBA Certification
How do I earn my CECs/CEUs?
CEC/CEUs are only available at SUCCEED! when you upgrade your registration OR if you're part of the FBA Certification Program (www.fbafitness.com). Once purchased or signed up, you will be sent a CEC/CEU grid the week of the virtual conference.
You will then mark an 'X' next to each session you attend. SUCCEED! will also evaluate participants to determine that you've accessed the event and stayed for the duration of each session for which you'd like to earn CEC/CEUs.
How do I keep track of the sessions I've attended at SUCCEED! with my purchase of CEC/CEUs?
On your CEC/CEU grid make sure to mark an 'X' next to each session you attend and that you'd like to receive your CEC/CEUs.
Do I have to watch every session to earn all the CEC/CEUs?
CEC/CEUs at SUCCEED! operates as an honor system for all education. You let us know how many sessions you completed and we identify that you did access the conference to be able to issue your certificate.
If my wifi drops and I log back on will I still get my credit?
Of course! You have an entire 12 months to watch at any time you'd like.
How do I prepare?
You simply log in and watch the sessions, that's all!
Are there tests?
No test at all!
Is it easy to navigate from one session to another?
Yep, you just leave a session room and click on another link to go into the next. All through a convenient dashboard.
Can I watch the sessions later and still earn the credit?
Our system operates on the honor system and you have 12 months to enjoy all the SUCCEED! education.
When do I get my certificate of achievement?
Once SUCCEED! can properly determine that you've attended the event and the appropriate sessions necessary, we'll promptly send your Certificate of Achievement. You do not need to do anything on your end, we'll handle it all!
What do I send to my certifying organization to get credit?
We recommend you send your certificate of achievement.
How does the FBA Certification work?
This HUGE perk is part of the package with CEC/CEUs. Once you've upgraded you'll have the option to begin your FBA Certification journey and complete all the required coursework to earn your certificate.
Post-SUCCEED! we'll direct you to all the necessary information to ensure a smooth transition occurs. And of course, you may reach out to us at any time with questions.
