I have tried to receive a refund from this program since June 2014. I have phoned, emailed and wrote a letter requesting a refund. The reason for the refund is the program was no longer of interest to me as I had changed my major at UMASS. I followed the refund procedures and still no response at all from anyone. I would not recommended this business to anyone.

What I love about ISFTA is the fact that they include a PRACTICAL component to their CPT certification exams. So not only do learn the information, but you also get first hand experience in having to be able to APPLY it.

I would like to thank ISFTA and its GREAT roster of top notch course instructors for the opportunities that have opened up to me since receiving my certificate. Fitness has always been a passion of mine. Now I can turn that passion into a career by helping others fulfill their fitness goals. I want to extend my thanks for the courses you offer and the unwavering drive that the ISFTA staff has in making sure that LIVE person to person instruction and practical hands on application is still best format for keeping the personal in person training. Thanks Team ISFTA!

As an educational provider myself I have a very scrutinizing eye for courses that I am willing to pay my hard earned money to attend. When I registered for my course I was pleased to see how dedicated the staff was to providing an unparalleled educational experience for its attendees. Everything from course registration to course presentation was spot on to what I would expect for what I was paying for. The added service of submitting my CEU's directly to the state was a great bonus. I strongly approve of this company and applauded their approach to providing superior service and education to its students.

Great Company!
I got my ISFTA personal trainer certification and I couldn’t be happier. I also got continuing education credits for my physical therapy license. They are they only company recognized nationally by PT, OT, LMT boards. Clearly the most credible organization.

A must for any LMT (or any medical professional for that matter) needing CEUs!
I have attended many CEU courses and been certified by many organizations during my 20 plus yrs of being in the health, fitness and wellness fields. I have never had a more pleasurable educational experience then what I had with ISFTA. Their office staff was prompt courteous and efficient not to mention they submitted my CEUs right to CE Broker for me (most impressed :-)). Can't wait to attend their upcoming rehab fitness course in central FL. Definitely would recommend attending their functional training course. The tools and methodologies covered during the hands on workshop can be easily transitioned to your everyday massage repertoire.
Most impressed ....and that is no small feat for an old grump like me..LOL
