Has anyone participated in the NASM Associate Trainer Program?
I have been looking into the NASM Associate Training Program. I have my CPT so I would just be participating in the 80 hour hands-on externship program. Has anyone gone through this program or have insights to programs like this?
I haven't, but having just completed the NASM-CPT, am considering it. Looking at a bunch of sites, it seems that these types of apprenticeships are pretty common.
It is nice to know someone is in the same boat! I am waiting to hear back if they will have an agreement in my area for the program. I wish the best of luck to you and if you participate in the program I would be interested in your experience!
Kristina - just thought I would let you know, I am doing the APTE through NASM. They have hooked me up with a high-end club in my area. Will be starting in a week or two. The program outline they sent me is, as typical of NASM, very comprehensive and requires homework, quizzes and a final! You're not just going to be hanging at a gym, looks like it should be really good - I'll keep you posted.
