Personal training certification from NPTI has become the foundation of countless successful and fulfilling careers for our graduates. The stories of graduate success range from those that have started their own studios, to working with health organizations and on cruise ships. Nothing shows the value of attaining their personal fitness goals and personal training certification like their stories of success that you can read here.
By now, you should know that in addition to your NPTI personal trainer certification, we prepare you to take the National Academy of Sports Medicine’s (NASM) NASM-CPT exam. What you may not realize is that our graduates are well positioned to seek a number of other National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) approved personal trainer certifications.
Among the other highly influential and prized advanced personal trainer certifications are Advanced Certified Personal Trainer (ACPT) exam certification from the Training and Wellness Certification Commission (TW-CC). The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) offers Certified Personal Trainer® (CPT), Certified Health Fitness SpecialistSM (HFS), and the Certified Group Exercise InstructorSM (GEI) credential among several others.
The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) offers a number of highly sought after certifications including NSCA-CPT® certification and the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist® (CSCS®). In addition, they offer the CSPS® certification for working with special populations. Their TSAC-F certification is designed for physically training military, fire and rescue, law enforcement and other emergency personnel to improve performance, promote wellness, and decrease injury risk.
There are also a number of valuable personal trainer certifications from the American Council on Exercise (ACE) that build and broaden the strong base of knowledge and personal trainer certification that graduates receive from NPTI. While our personal trainer certification is applicable throughout your entire career, expanding your knowledge and certification base through additional personal trainer certifications can only serve to enable further growth in your chosen specialty.
