The 2022 National Certification Conference

May 30 - June 18, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

 

AFDC is excited and proud to continue our tradition of offering comprehensive training programs and world class, internationally recognized certification. After the unfortunate cancellation of our 2020 and 2021 workshops, we are excited to return to British Columbia! We are fortunate to have one of the most successful, progressive and inclusive professional training bodies in the world, and together with UBC, we happily bring that experience and tradition to Vancouver once again.

Certification at Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Actor/Combatant levels, as well as our Fight Instructor Certification program, will be offered and guided by experts from around the world.

Our Early Bird Registration discount is in effect! Get $200 off if you register and pay your deposit before Feb. 13th!
