PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP unless you are 110% committed to the certification. There are NO refunds for missing this certification or cancelling your commitment. Joe D. and I only want to work with the best coaches who are dedicated to making themselves better and providing the best training for their athletes. If you have any hesitation that you might cancel OR that you will not be able to fulfill the requirements of the certification – do NOT sign up.
CPPS is a hands-on certification. You will NOT be given your CPPS Level 1 Certification if you are a spectator during the weekend. You will have to participate, train, demonstrate the techniques shown and be able to answer questions when quizzed.
Block the dates on your calendar and start preparing with the pre-certification curriculum now so you’ll be ready to hit the ground running when the big weekend comes. You must prepare and study the curriculum contained in AMPED Warm-up, POWER, EXTREME, and Hard:CORE. Calling last minute that you can’t attend or you’re not ready – is NOT acceptable.
If you cancel after investing in the CPPS certification, under careful consideration, you will be given the opportunity to attend another certification at a later date for a $497 rescheduling fee.
We are only interested in working with coaches who operate on integrity, honesty, and truthfulness. Do not sign up and pursue the CPPS certification if you are not willing to put your clients first, are dedicated to continuous improvement, and operate every day on these standards. Becoming a CPPS certified trainer is more than just the training and knowledge, it is how you define and carry yourself after you leave – when Joe D. and Smitty are not around. You will be asked to hold yourself to a higher standard and carry the CPPS ideals with you every day.
