ISPA Now more than Ever

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

In these turbulent economic times it is important to make sure you are doing everything you can to standout from the other professionals working in your field. Many organizations are facing tough decisions and are being forced to layoff their employees. Individuals with the least credentials will come under the most scrutiny when it comes time for a company to decide whom to layoff. By being credentialed by The International Sports Professionals Association you are reinforcing how serious you are about your career. An ISPA credential helps protect your passion!

Individuals seeking help from sports professionals are going to have less money available for services and as such will be skeptical when seeking out professional help. Having an ISPA credential will help bolster the public’s confidence in your services and assure them that they made the right decision in spending their hard earned money. An ISPA credential turns skepticism into confidence.

New Credential off to a Great Start!

Monday, June 14th, 2010

The launch of the new CWcHP certification has been very well received. Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers are becoming certified to care for the injured worker. Most who have applied for the credential thus far have had their fees paid for through their employee benefit allocation for continuing education and certifications. Thus, this credential is a Win-Win-Win for everyone. It advances the therapist/trainer’s career (Win); it advances the standing of the company they work for (Win); and most of all, it helps the clients (Win).

Please help spread the word on this important certification.

Conference Highlight

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

One of the highlights of the Sports and Society conference was to hear two of our ISPA superstars speak, Dr. Chris Stout and Kurt David. With these two speakers along with Justin Mayer, Executive Director of ISPA, Andrew Teunis, Director of Development of ISPA and myself, Dr. John Mayer, President of ISPA, the International Sports Professionals Association had a very strong showing of professionals speaking at this inaugural conference.

More and more ISPA is taking Paul Tagliabue’s call for sports leadership and standing out in the forefront of sports. We have several exciting programs we are going to roll out in the coming months.

Kurt A. David Receives Diplomate Credential

Friday, June 4th, 2010

While we were at the Sports and Society Conference in De Pere, Wisconsin we met up with fellow ISPA Credentialed Professional Kurt A. David.  When the ISPA told Kurt about this prestigious conference, he immediately decided to present at the conference.

The ISPA felt it would be a great time to honor Kurt’s many achievements in sports counseling by recognizing him as a Diplomate within the ISPA. Diplomate is the highest status one can reach in their field. Diplomate status is only given to a few select individuals whom have reached the pinnacle in their field. Furthermore, to be considered for Diplomate status you must exhibit great passion for sports. After spending time with Kurt it is very clear that he is not only an accomplished professional but also a passionate individual. We are honored to have Kurt A. David as an ISPA Diplomate. For more information on Kurt visit: www.fromglorydays.com

I would like to highlight that several therapists are paying for their credential and examination through their employee benefits package at their place of employment. Check this out….you have usually a yearly benefit for attending conferences, extra training, credentials, etc. This is a win-win for you and your employer.
