Alberta Milk, in partnership with the Alberta Sport Recreation Parks and Wildlife Foundation, has provided Alberta teachers with active living and nutrition education programs for over 20 years.
The Alberta Fitness Leadership Certification Association (AFLCA) was established in 1984 to provide training, evaluation and accreditation to group exercise leaders in Alberta. The AFLCA was the flagship organization in the National Fitness Leadership Alliance, ensuring a consistent standard of training and transferability across Canada.
The AFLCA is a part of the Provincial Fitness Unit of Alberta, a group of three not-for-profit organizations that provide standards and certification in group exercise leadership and one-on-one exercise consultation, as well as education and outreach programs to promote active living across Alberta. These organizations, supported by the Alberta Sport Recreation Parks and Wildlife Foundation and the University of Alberta, have been the sole provider of government sanctioned certification and accreditation in the Alberta fitness industry for twenty-six years. The AFLCA provides training, evaluation and accreditation for group exercise leaders and has a membership of approximately 1,800 members.
Alberta Milk and AFLCA working together
Alberta Milk dietitians in consultation with sports nutrition dietitians recently revised the nutrition and weight management section of the new 2010 AFLCA Exercise Theory manual. Alberta Milk has provided AFLCA with credible nutrition information since 1997.
