For the seventh consecutive year, AASP is partnering with West Virginia University (WVU) to offer a distance-learning course focusing on “Professional Ethics and Standards in Sport and Exercise Psychology”. The program, which begins the week of June 11, was specifically developed to examine important ethical and legal issues that sport and exercise psychology professionals often encounter in their work as teachers, researchers, and practitioners. AASP is also seeking to standardize ethics training for anyone interested in seeking AASP certification.
Dr. Ed Etzel, Professor in the Department of Sport Sciences at WVU and a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC), will be the featured instructor. While the offering will be predominently online, there will be 10 hours of in-person, required instruction held at the conference site just prior to AASP's 2018 Annual Meeting in Toronto (October 2-3, 2018). A final online exam will end the course. Tuition for the course is $995.
Please Note: This course is for continuing education and fulfills AASP prerequisites for certification, but is NOT offered for college or graduate credit.
Here's what some of the participants had to say about the course:
"The professional ethics course offered by WVU was the most relevant ethics course offered by any institution to meet the Association for Applied Sport Psychology ethics requirements. The online access was easy to use and the class interactions and assignments were both insightful and beneficial to gaining a deeper understanding on how to deal with ethical dilemmas that practitioners may face. The onsite portion during the pre-conference time not only made for great interaction, but also greatly increased my professional network, allowing me to make valuable connections within the field."
"Dr. Etzel is an exemplary instructor, it was a pleasure to be a part of his class."
"The online content was not difficult to navigate and Dr. Etzel managed the course very well. He responded to all communication quickly and thoughtfully. I would recommend this course to others."
"This course was well organized, helpful and, overall, a valuable experience."
"I enjoyed the course and found it to be a very useful tool in my overall development as a professional. Dr. Etzel was great, especially in person."
2018 course registration is available through June 1, 2018.
