CHOOSING ACE CERTIFICATION:
When choosing a career in the fitness industry, one of the most important decisions you will face is selecting which certification to pursue. Not all fitness certifications are the same. A quality fitness certification is one that enjoys widespread industry respect, is consistent with recognized certification standards and is legally defensible in a court of law.
Since its founding in 1985, ACE has certified more than 200,000 health and fitness professionals in the United States and 77 other counties. ACE certification exams are standardized, broad-based tests of the knowledge necessary to safely and effectively instruct.
ACE offers four fitness certifications:
Personal Trainer Certification
Advanced Health + Fitness Specialist Certification
Group Fitness Instructor Certification
Health Coach Certification
ACE-certified Professionals are the most sought after in the world and uphold the highest standards in the fitness industry. Certification with ACE confirms your commitment to an industry-recognized standard and demonstrates a proficient level of knowledge to your clients.
ACE certification exams and study materials have been developed by leading experts (researchers and practitioners) in the fitness field.
2003 ACE was granted NCCA accreditation for all of its certification programs. NCCA is the accreditation body of the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA). The NCCA accreditation serves as a benchmark for how organizations should conduct certification programs. The NCCA accreditation clearly distinguishes the excellence and value of ACE certification among the more than 300 fitness certification programs available to the public and discriminates between qualified and unqualified fitness professionals.
The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) and Medical Fitness Association (MFA) recommend that club owners and medical fitness facility operators only hire fitness professionals with certifications from agencies accredited through NCCA or an equivalent accrediting organization. By upholding this standard, your ACE certification will provide you a competitive advantage when being considered as a candidate for employment with a company or organization that belongs to IHRSA.
To renew and maintain your certification, you must earn 2.0 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) every two years through ACE-approved courses or professional activities.
