Any organizations That Pay for your Exams & CECs

6 Answers | Asked by User on May 24, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 24, 2013

Hello, you may get lucky that a potential employer will pay for part of it. Most do not; some may subsidize your CeCs. There is no 'organization' that I know of that will pay for it. They have little incentive because you could take your certification and run. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 23, 2013

Hi Judy, are you asking about a membership to IDEA which is an organization of fitness professionals and not a health club? No, I do not believe that Blue Cross / Blue Shield would cover that. I assume that you are looking for a health club membership. It will be best if you contact BCBS dire...

Why does the BCRPA not show Personal Trainer as a certification option?

1 Answer | Asked by Diana Ramsey on May 18, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 22, 2013

Hi Diana, chances are that the BCRPA has not listed them with IDEA,and you may need to take it up with them. I am sure that IDEA does not decide what to put up there but just takes the input from the certifying agencies. It may just have been an oversight. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com
