FEC Success Seminar is now a IAAPA Certification Course

The FEC Success Seminar, hosted by Amusement Products, is now a pre-approved course for IAAPA’s Certification program.

In 1997, Amusement Products hosted its first FEC Success Seminar, and has become the longest running educational seminar in the Family Entertainment Center industry. Registration is open twice yearly, in the spring and fall, to anyone considering owning or operating a FEC, or anyone considering expanding or upgrading their current FEC.

The 2-day seminar is conducted at the Amusement Products manufacturing facility and covers a variety of topics to educate both new and existing FEC operators. Experienced industry experts share their knowledge and insights on subjects such as feasibility, financing, zoning, design, construction, attractions, and more, with each segment including a Q & A session. There are ample opportunities to participate in informal group discussions, as well as scheduled one-to-one consultations with any of the presenters. Also included in the seminar is a tour of Amusement Products’ manufacturing facility and hands-on testing of attractions on location at their FEC product test site.

“I would recommend this seminar for anyone who is thinking about opening or adding to an FEC,” said Mary Dahm-Schell, an 18-year FEC operator. She added, “While large tradeshows are fun, exciting, and informative, this smaller venue allows real Q & A sessions and discussions with many experts. The intimacy of the FEC Success is a real plus!”

Ernest S., another attendee, commented, “I attended the 2-day FEC seminar conducted by Amusement Products and I can say they surpassed all expectations. The ability to listen to, converse with, and most importantly bounce your ideas off of a cadre of industry professionals who are there to help you avoid pitfalls and exploit opportunities is a recipe for success. Highly recommend it.”

All attendees will be awarded a certificate of completion for 14 credit hours at the conclusion of the seminar to be applied toward IAAPA certification. Amusement Products is proud to be recognized as a pre-approved course as part of IAAPA’s curriculum. The next FEC Success Seminar will be October 2-3, 2018.
