Still a couple more weeks until DLP release
Thank you to those who have expressed an interest in our Distance Learning Program. I am positive that when it becomes available again, you will find exactly what you have been looking for.
Speaking of which, I wanted to give you a quick update as to what the current status is.
To open the program again requires completion of the Student Grade 1 section, which encompasses all step-by-step videos, the SG01 study guide (online and PDF), the SG01 weekly training program (online and PDF) and the basic fitness training program (online and PDF). The online guides are completed and are being converted to PDF. Most videos are completed and going through the final edits and renders, so hopefully in another couple of weeks the Student Grade 1 section will be completed. At that time I will open up the DLP for enrollment.
During this, I will also be continuing work on the remaining sections so that all rank levels are completed and available. Until then, all current members are still receiving their DVDs so that their training can continue.
It sounds like a lot of work, and trust me it is! What you are seeing (and will be seeing with the advent of the new program) is the culmination of almost 3 years of work, including writing the guides, all of the video and photo shoots, continuous upgrades to the delivery methods, and finishing things up so that it is deliverable on multiple platforms.
Anyone attempting this type of project generally hires a media company, but that means passing the price tag on to you. Since we already have the technical skill sets to do it ourselves, we can fashion the program exactly as we want it to be, while also ensuring that is available for far less than you would expect.
The AWCA Distance Learning Program has evolved over the years to the point that it is now the most efficient and effective that any online training program can possibly be. Once our new program is deployed, I think you will immediately see that it was worth the wait. My standards are quite high and I would be first in line to work with this program. I dig it that much!
So just another couple of weeks and you should be seeing the announcements that we are ready to go again.
