Many accrediting bodies exist in and outside the fitness industry. The main accrediting organization for the personal fitness training industry is the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). This agency operates under the auspice of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE). The NFPT – CPT program is accredited by the NCCA and therefore adheres to standards which pertain to certification business and test development practices.
When you get certified by NFPT, you can be certain that it is a quality and legitimate industry recognized certification.
