WHAT ARE CECs?

Continuing Education Credits

WHY DO I NEED CONTINUING EDUCATION?

Continuing education requirements can be different for each certification agency. But the premise is the same, we all require that continued competence be demonstrated through continuing education.

If you don’t keep up on your CECs, you will lose the CPT credential that you worked hard for (which will affect your job, your insurance policy, and your reputation – we’ll help make sure that doesn’t happen)!

HOW DO I GET CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS?

2.0 CECs are needed each year. 1 learning hour = 0.2 CECs (so you need 10 hours of learning activity each year). You can get these hours in so many different ways that we can’t possibly list them all. But here’s some of the most popular CEC activities: NFPT Self-Tests and Other Free Sources, Courses / Classes, Workshops, Seminars, CPR/AED Certification, Proof of Insurance, Writing CE Articles. If you take the time to do an exercise science or fitness business learning activity, we’ll give you the credit!!

GET CREDITS

CAN I GET CREDITS FOR NON PRE-APPROVED PROGRAMS?

You may choose to submit a learning activity which is not pre-approved by NFPT for CECs, that’s okay! There is no petition or submission fee for our review and approval! We will review your submission and determine your credit award (CECs) based on 3 things: Participation Hours, Recognition of Learning Activity/Provider, and Relevant Subject Matter.

If your activity meets the criteria for these 3 areas, then you’re good to go!

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY CREDITS?

Submit documentation for CECs through your online NFPT account, or by snail mail or email at [email protected] Documentation could be in the form of a certificate of completion, transcript or confirmation letter – heck, take a picture of the doc with your smart phone and send it to us, we’ll accept it that way too! As long as you provide us with the document/s/ that shows us what you’ve done and with what company/presenter you did it through, get it over to us and we’ll award you the credit!

There is no fee associated with submitting your CEs which is unique to NFPT!
