  1. Hi Krista,

    This is a fabulous site. I plan on taking APEX this coming September. I’ve been consistently taking every aerobics and dance class known to man for more than 10 years and after numerous people approaching me about teaching and with more focus on what I want, I’d like to start teaching aerobics, step and dance fusion classes this year. I’ve looked into AFAA and read your AFAA Group Ex. Cert. blogs. Very helpful.

    As I don’t have group ex. instruction experience per se, I was planning on taking the Practical Skills and Choreography course as a prereq to the Group Ex. Cert. Do you have or do you know anyone with experience with the Practical Skills class?

    Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Valerie! Welcome to the blog. I am familiar with the Practical Skills class, but I did not take it. It fills in the gap between the more technical information covered in the Primary Group Cert and actually leading a successful class. I would recommend it for any new instructor, but I don’t believe it will make it any easier to pass the Primary. What I might do, therefore, is take it after acheiving the Primary Cert. This way, you will receive continuing education credits for taking it. If you take it as a pre-req, they won’t count. The knowledge is the same, it is just a matter of getting the most bang for your buck. I hope that helps!
