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.
