Thank you for your interest in promoting continuing education and professional development to NFPT certified trainers!

Are you an education provider? Would you like to reach NFPT trainers to let them know that your course is approved for an NFPT credit award!? We make the process of becoming a provider stress free! Our application process is cut and dry, affordable and offers promotional benefits that are as valuable as you want to make it. Our goal is to work closely with Continuing Education partners to provide NFPT fitness trainers with educational tools for enhancing skill sets, marketability and confidence. Oh, and did we mention that our trainers will get the credits that they need to renew by taking your CE course! Our trainers enjoy variety in their options, and so do we. NFPT will always provide numerous options for completing quality CE that varies in scope and difficulty level, from a number of different providers.
