ATU Polyclinics: Stay-at-Home CE for 2011

Dumpster swimming pools?Don't let your therapists hear another "MOMMY, DON'T GO!!!"

A few months back we surveyed aquatic directors and rehab managers to discover what they fret most about when sending staff off to continuing ed training.

Public enemy #1? Pulling their therapists away from family, followed closely by patient coverage and rising travel costs.

Need a way to keep your people fresh without impacting ops or morale? Consider ATU polyclinics, a new CE concept where we hit the road with our proven 2010 classes so your people don't have to.

From elite athlete to fragile child, we have a track that will interest your staff. Be you water newbies or aquatic black-belts, consider purchasing an ATU polyclinic now. It's aquatic therapy at its best and without the tears.
