BECOME A NFPT APPROVED CE PROVIDER
Thank you for your interest in promoting continuing education and professional development to NFPT certified trainers!
Are you a continuing education provider? Would you like to reach NFPT trainers to let them know that your course is approved for an NFPT credit award!?
Our application process is stress-free, 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.
Our trainers enjoy variety in their CE options, and so do we. We encourage our trainers to participate in quality CE that varies in scope and difficulty level, from a number of different providers. NFPT trainers can get the credits they need to recertify by taking your CE course!
here are the 3 SPECIFIC ASPECTS of your course/s/ that we will review when you apply to become an NFPT CEC Provider:
1. Participation Hours:
When submitting course description/s/, make sure to identify the number of participation hours that it is expected to complete your respective course/activity (this may include examination/assessment time as well).
1 hour = 0.2 NFPT CECs
|Number of Learning Activity Hours||Number of Credits Awarded|
|1 Hour||0.2 CECs|
|2 Hours||0.4 CECs|
|3 Hours||0.6 CECs|
|4 Hours||0.8 CECs|
|5 Hours||1.0 CECs|
|6 Hours||1.2 CECs|
|7 Hours||1.4 CECs|
|8 Hours||1.6 CECs|
|9 Hours||1.8 CECs|
|10 Hours||2.0 CECs|
2. Recognition of the Activity:
Course content, instructor experience and/or industry recognition, are taken into consideration for each respective continuing education activity. For example, the course must be developed industry expert/s/, delivered professionally and a certificate of completion or other form of successful course confirmation must be provided to the student at the end of the course and/or test.
3. Relevant Subject Matter:
The educational content of your course(s) should speak to the development of fitness training skill sets and/or the business of personal training for the purpose of skill set growth to existing CPTs. In other words, your course/s/ must be relevant to the profession, and must NOT be a personal trainer certification course. NFPT does not approve personal fitness trainer certification course/programs as pre-approved providers of NFPT continuing education.
