Welcome to the TMWC Activity Professional Academy
Below are the courses offered toward certification.

Certification in the activities field helps professionals establish a framework for practice so that they can provide the best possible experience for their residents. The first step to certification is to complete the National Certification Council for Activity Professionals' required training coursework.

Foundations in
Activity Service (MEPAP 1)

This course prepares students for the essential functions and duties of an activity professional including the design and delivery of activity services for older adults across the continuum of care. 

Activities Leadership Program (MEPAP 2)

This course prepares students to apply principles of management in their role as an Activity Professional. This includes providing service through leadership and using the principles of planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling.

MEPAP One-to-One Program
(includes both courses)

Some people just prefer the personal touch of my One-on-One MEPAP Training Program. In this version of the training, we meet weekly for 4 hour sessions for a total of 45 weeks. During this time we cover all course content at a place consistent with your particular learning style.

Professional Coaching Services

Have you finished the MEPAP 2nd Edition and want some help making sure you're ready for the National Exam? Or maybe you're already working and need a boost or some professional guidance. If this is the case, you might want to sign up for a professional coaching session with me. I'll walk you through the next stages of the process to help you feel confident and prepared for the next step of your journey! 

Student Testimonials

I truly believe this class has helped me in SO many ways, even though I've been an acting activity director for 12 years, there are so many things I was never taught, as well as the up to date info that everyone should 


Thank you Tim! You are an amazing person who truly cares for others, and the best teacher for this course. Thank you for your "every step of the way" attitude and advice!!   I highly recommend this course for anyone considering the activity profession as a career, or anyone already in this field as there is much to learn. Thanks again Tim!!


Student Testimonials

I took both MEPAP classes with Tim Anderson and I couldn’t be happier. He is hands down the best teacher I have ever had. His classes are so unique and nothing like I experienced before. His teaching styles vary depending on the topic we’re discussing so it’s really fun to go to class every week, we never know what to expect! 

He mirrors what we learn in textbooks into real life scenarios which is beneficial to our career. You cannot learn what Tim teaches you through job trainings. Taking his class taught me so much about the beginning of the Activity Professional world to where it is today. His class covers a wide spectrum of knowledge that is beneficial to dealing with various population types, which is very helpful, since the Activity Professional world is always changing. 

There’s not one person I wouldn’t recommend to take his class. From taking this class I can easily say that it prepared me to take the national exam, and to be the Activity Professional I am today.
