andrea salzman aquatic therapy queen mumHi Musculoskeletals,

My name is Andrea Salzman and I am the instructor for your upcoming aquatics course. I am very much looking forward to meeting (and remeeting!) all of you August 19-20 for “Water-Based Interventions for the Musculoskeletal Client".

Dress in comfortable layers for the classroom so you can adjust your temperature for personal comfort. I always think it's slightly warm (presenting) but everyone has their own thermostat.

You are going to love the class. Plan on being exhausted and excited about your chosen occupations once again…

b2ap3_thumbnail_teacherkid-at-chalkboard.jpgBeen wanting a polyclinic but been having pocketbook issues? We haven't forgotten about you. We have been wracking our brain trying to come up with alternative ways to bring ATU to your sites and we may have come up with one! It is called Instructor-In-Residence and would involve one of your own staff teaching your class instead of one of ours. Result? A polyclinic that costs half the standard rate.

Interested? Here's how it would work; you or your director would hand-pick a bright experienced therapist, who has an affinity to teach, and send them to us for a 3-day I Want to Teach! class (cost=$1000). After passing Andrea's stringent vetting process, the therapist would then be returned to you with a license to teach our content in-house for any and as many times as you wish. We would offer free support and tips throughout the year and when it came time for a new class, we would just repeat the process the following year.

Bad News: you miss out on ATU's stable of sterling world-renown instructors.
Good News: your polyclinic now only costs $3600 ($2600 if you agree to open it up to outsiders and you sent us a therapist with a Masters or above).

While this concept obviously isn't for everyone, it is an option we are offering to cost-conscious sites who have contacted us in the past. What do you think? Might this work in your situation? Do you have a bubbly effervescent aquatic evangelist who would love to teach? Please discuss this amongst yourselves and let me know if this idea has any merit. As I said, it is a new concept so if you have found some holes, we would love to hear about them.
